A Record of Success in Litigation After Explosions and Other Catastrophic Events
A dive boat accident that has ended, or threatens to end, your career as a diver or other type of maritime worker may be extremely challenging to investigate and analyze. Our work across the spectrum of oil field and maritime injuries has yielded relevant, useful knowledge and insight, as well as relationships with experts that may prove critical to your quest for monetary compensation that can save or improve your future.
We are familiar with the dangers and critical safety measures associated with dive boat operations involving:
- Offshore construction, underwater teardown, and deconstruction
- Pipeline maintenance and seabed well work that unfortunately exposes workers to accidents ranging from drownings to burns and other severe injuries
- Pipeline shutdown requiring bleeding highly combustible gas into tanks on a dive boat
- Risk-intensive dives that can result in accidents producing brain injuries or other serious harm should an equipment problem occur
