Fighting for Barge Explosion Victims

Barges and dredges are part of the massive logistics network that keeps our country running. Unfortunately, working on a barge is dangerous work. Our firm has represented numerous workers who were injured in barge accidents and barge explosions along the Gulf Coast. One of our cases involved Bouchard Transportation, a barge company from New York. Bouchard’s barges had a documented flaw that allowed oil vapors to accumulate in the hold, which eventually triggered a massive explosion. Our client’s son was killed in the explosion, and our work eventually uncovered the fact that Bouchard knew their barges were at risk of exploding.

Offshore Injury FAQ

Can I Get Fired for Talking with an Attorney?

First of all, your conversation with our firm will remain 100% confidential. There’s no way for your attorney to know you spoke with us. Secondly, if your employer is even implying that you shouldn’t seek legal counsel, it’s a good sign that you should. Serious offshore accidents often compel companies to protect themselves in whatever way they can, which includes intimidating you out of pursuing your rights. If you are fired for speaking with an attorney, it will entitle you to seek further damages. In other words, you have nothing to fear and everything to gain from speaking with an attorney about your injuries.

Do I Have to See the Doctor My Employer Got for Me?

Maritime law gives you the right to seek medical care from whatever doctor you want. Your company may pressure you to use their doctor, but we urge you to get a second opinion of your injuries from an independent source. Company doctors often make their living from referrals from the company, which means a doctor may be incentivized to say you’re fit for returning to work when you’re really not.

Additionally, a company doctor will only perform treatments paid for by the company. As a result, your care ceases to be about your needs, but what the company thinks is necessary for you. Your best advocate for your health is you, not your employer.

Am I Eligible to File a Jones Act Claim?

The Jones Act broadly applies to seamen who are working in service to a “vessel in navigation” on a navigable waterway. That includes any vessel in active operation, regardless of whether it is moving at the time of injury. It also includes vessels in rivers, ports, ship channels, as well as at sea. Additionally, to be considered a “Jones Act seaman,” at least 30% of your job needs to be on a vessel.

If you have questions about your eligibility under the Jones Act, speak with our firm in a free case consultation today!
