What Should I Do If I Am Injured At Sea?
Working on a ship can be dangerous. Just ask the hundreds of Texas workers injured at sea every year. If a workplace accident left you injured, follow these important steps:
- Seek medical attention, even if you do not have visible injuries.
- Document the scene of the accident by taking pictures, if possible.
- Report the incident to your supervisor.
- Do NOT talk to any insurance company representatives. Instead, hire a lawyer.
Gilman & Allison, LLP, can help you file your claim and seek the maximum compensation available to you.
Act Quickly: There Is A Statute Of Limitations
There are strict statutes of limitations for most maritime civil claims. For example, you must file an injury or wrongful death claim within three years of the incident. If you miss a deadline, you may lose your right to recover compensation. Our attorneys can help you move your case along as quickly as possible and meet every statute of limitations.
