Maritime Amputation Injury Lawyers

Powerful Counsel for Victims of Offshore Amputations

Employment in the offshore oil and gas industry is the most dangerous job in the country. It is no surprise that maritime workers often suffer from catastrophic injuries. One of the most common injuries that occur are amputation injuries, typically caused by dangerous equipment that has been used or maintained improperly. Amputation injuries are also often caused when offshore employers fail to provide proper safety equipment or meet safety standards.

We are proud to help injured workers in Houston, throughout all Texas, and nationwide—including clients in Louisiana, Alabama, and Mississippi. If you have suffered from an amputation injury in a maritime accident, contact our maritime amputation injury lawyers for a free case review.

Common Causes of Maritime Amputation Injuries

Although not all maritime injuries are caused by negligence, amputation injuries often are. If an employer or vessel owner fails to maintain equipment, train the crew, or create a safe work environment, it can cause serious injuries that require amputation.

Some of these accidents may be caused due to the following:

  • Unsecured cargo
  • Navigation collisions
  • Lack of safety and equipment training
  • Defective and malfunctioning equipment

It is vital to work with equipment and machinery that is regularly maintained so that it is working correctly. It is the employer’s responsibility to ensure that workers are properly trained to use the equipment. If your employer has not met this standard and you lost a limb as a result, he or she was negligent and should be held accountable. To learn how, read more about the Jones Act here.

Amputation Treatment

Surgery is required to treat a lost limb or to amputate a limb. Once you have had surgery, you may still need extensive physical and emotional therapy to help you adjust to the new reality of missing a limb or using a prosthetic limb. These payment costs can be difficult for an injured maritime worker to handle, especially while supporting a family. Our firm often has to help our clients rebuild their financial security in the wake of costly medical treatments. This is why it is vital to contact a maritime amputation injury attorney as soon as possible.

Recovering Compensation for Amputation Injuries

If you suffered severe injuries in a maritime accident that required amputation, you have the right to receive compensation. Limb loss is a financially costly loss; patients face treatment costs for the rest of their lives. Under maritime law, you have several avenues for recovering damages, especially if negligence is involved. Since maritime law is different from laws on land, it is vital to contact an experienced maritime amputation injury attorneyas soon as possible to help you receive the best possible results for your case.
