Maritime Accident

San Diego Maritime Injury Lawyers

By San Diego Injury Lawyer on June 1, 2011 - Comments off

Every year, thousands of vessels come in and out of the San Diego Port’s two marine cargo facilities and one cruise facility, primarily because of its prime location in between Los Angeles and Mexico. The many maritime workers and dock laborers that work in and on these vessels help to make this process run smoothly. Though, it is a high-risk job and accidents happen because of other people’s negligence.
If you work in or on a vessel and are injured during the job, you will be covered by the Jones Act or the Longshoremen’s and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA). Because the laws governing maritime workers and dock laborers are tricky, you should contact an experienced San Diego maritime accident lawyer immediately. The lawyers at the Jurewitz Law Group will maximize your chances for a successful recovery in a maritime accident lawsuit. Contact our law office at (888) 233-5020 for more information.

There is no doubt that commercial seamen and fishermen have face many more unpredictable risks including harsh weather conditions, long work hours, and clashing seas. That is why it is extremely important to keep the vessel properly maintained and to keep the seamen onboard safe under extreme circumstances. But sometimes, accidents happen.
