Maritime Lifting Injuries
Texas Maritime Back Injury Lawyer
Heavy lifting comes with a ship crew’s territory. Moving cargo, heavy equipment, fish traps and gear all require special techniques when working onboard a moving boat or vessel. The lack of firm support beneath the legs means that heavy objects take on added weight, often more than the legs, arms or back can handle. Compounding the problem for seamen is that vessel owners rarely teach proper lifting techniques at sea.
