Who Is Responsible for My Injuries?
In most offshore accidents, the vessel owner has legal liability over the injuries that occur on their vessel. Whether you are a passenger or a crew member who has suffered injuries due to a gangway accident, you are entitled to legal rights and compensation. Cause of gangway accidents can include the following:
- Change in weather or currents
- Failed gangway wire rope
- Improper use of gangway
- Inadequate safety precautions
- Lack of proper maintenance
- Unsecured gangway
Gangway and boarding accidents can cause serious injuries or even result in death.
Due to the seriousness of these types of accidents it is highly recommended that you contact a maritime attorney to protect your rights to proper compensation. Having a seasoned lawyer on your side always allows you to effectively determine who is at fault and liable for your injuries. You may be able to bring legal action against the vessel owner, equipment manufacturers, the company that employed you, and other parties as well.
