Choosing the right attorney makes all the difference in a personal injury case!

star

There are hundreds, if not thousands of personal injury attorneys. However, personal injury attorneys are not all the same. Each law firm has different goals as a business, and the strategies they use in their cases are aligned. Choosing a small firm with values that align with your personal goals for your case will give your case the attention and time it needs to get you the best possible outcome.

Seamen Injuries Louisiana Attorney

Seamen Injuries Louisiana Attorney

Seamen is a term used to describe an individual who is assigned as an employee on a vessel out on the open seas. Such employment for seamen includes a deckhand, marine rigger, assistance cook, second officer and more. There are several positions that an employee can hold within a ship as it travels on the open waters. This category of employment is dangerous due to the nature of the open water as well as the heavy machinery that is used onboard the ship. Because of the danger level, it is important for seamen to know the laws that are in place to protect them when an injury occurs. 

Offshore Injuries

If you are new to the maritime industry, you may be unaware as to how many injuries occur due to offshore employment. Each year, a high number of employees in the maritime industry are subject to an offshore industry. Employees of supply boats, crew boats, and tugboats become injured and are unable to work and earn a living due to the extent of the injury. At Cueria Law Firm, we have seen many cases where seamen are injured and unable to pay for medical bills due to losing their primary source of income based on the injury. 

At Cueria Law Firm, we want to help offshore workers claim compensation to assist with medical bills and living expenses based on the injury sustained while employed offshore. Our Louisiana personal injury attorneys are ready to provide you with legal counsel to help you recover from the accident in a physical manner as well as emotionally and financially. 

There are several common injuries sustained while working in the maritime industry. It is not uncommon for an employee to be injured due to a slip and fall on the deck or to be hit with a large object due to the moving of cargo via cranes. The rough sea waters make it difficult to work on a vessel which only intensifies the level of danger. 

If you or someone you love has been injured while working as a seaman, contact our office.

Our personal injury attorneys are ready to provide you with the legal advice you need to move forward with your case. We can work on negotiations or the process of filing a claim for compensation. Our attorneys have years of experience dealing with such cases and are ready to assist you in your fight against a former employer. Give our attorneys a call today to learn more about how we can help.
