Attorney R. Brent Cueria, Esq. of Cueria Law Firm, L.L.C. talking about Commercial Diving

 

 

Regardless of whether you work on a dive vessel or underwater, commercial diving can be very demanding, isolating, and frequently very dangerous work. A diver is extremely, almost completely, reliant upon his dive team to ensure his safety at all times. A competent boat captain, dive supervisor, safety officer and experienced tender are vital to protecting a commercial diver from serious injury or death. However, commercial diving injuries do occur. The Cueria Law Firm, L.L.C. is experienced in representing persons injured either above or below the water during commercial dive operations.

commercial diving accident attorneyDepending on the gravity of your diving injury you may be entitled to compensation including claims for pain and suffering, loss of wages, loss of life enjoyment, and medical expenses just to name a few. When you contact us, we will take any and all necessary steps to thoroughly investigate the cause of your injury with the goal of properly evaluating your commercial diving Injury claim and presenting the strongest case possible, be it in settlement negotiations, or at trial. We have a team of lawyers and able experts available to investigate and document the cause of dive injuries for divers or tenders injured in the Gulf of Mexico or elsewhere in the world. Our attorneys are experienced in proving a commercial diving negligence case and properly presenting damages incurred as a result of diving injuries to a court and a jury.

Dive Vessel Injuries

The individuals who work on these dive vessels or as underwater divers are usually considered seamen because they contribute to the “mission of the vessel” and are considered “wards of the court” with special protection under the Jones Act. As discussed in the Jones Act Claim (link) section, Jones Act Seamen are able to assert claims against their employer for damages caused by negligence and are also entitled to maintenance and cure. Third party claims such as defective diving equipment are also available. It is important that you contact us as soon as possible after you are involved in a commercial diving accident.

We believe in personalized attention. Our initial meeting will be face-to-face at the client’s home. Together with local counsel, we are able to represent clients throughout the country and are willing to schedule a meeting at your home at your convenience. This meeting involves no out-of-pocket cost or obligation to the injured party or the family. Following our meeting, we are prepared to quickly obtain investigative reports from the proper investigative agencies and request all available information concerning the accident pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.

We strongly recommend that you contact us immediately after a serious and catastrophic injury, such as a commercial diving injury, occurs so that our team of experienced investigators and experts can determine the cause of the accident and injury, identify any responsible third parties, take any witness statements, and preserve important evidence. Cueria Law Firm, L.L.C. is ready to assist in evaluating theories of recovery in your commercial diving injury case.
