Maritime Tool Injuries

Texas Ship Cargo Line and Boat Winch Accident Attorney

Tool injuries among commercial oil crews, seamen, fishermen and boat crews are common and often serious. Vibration from heavy power tools often cause hand, arm and back injuries that are more common at sea than on land. When using a piece of heavy equipment on an oil rig, often under adverse wave and weather conditions, injuries can be more serious and life-threatening. Using any kind of power equipment onboard a vessel at sea is dangerous. A rolling, heaving deck offers no base of support and sudden jolts can turn a power tool into a dangerous weapon.

If you suffered an injury onboard a vessel or on a dock while working with drilling equipment or other kinds of power tools, talk to a maritime law injury lawyer at Doyle Raizner LLP as soon as possible. Recovering money damages from your vessel owner under U.S. admiralty laws requires knowledge and experience that most personal injury attorneys lack. Maritime injury claims fall under federal or state jurisdiction. No matter where you were injured in U.S. coastal or inland waters, you have the option of hiring a qualified maritime law attorney who will work with local counsel in your city.
