Serving Injured Workers Across The Gulf Coast

Common causes of falls on barges

One of the most common work injuries in almost every industry is falling. Every year there are thousands of workers who end up with a broken bone or head trauma after tripping and landing badly. They can be attributed to reckless behavior, dangerous working conditions or neglectful employers. Maritime workers are in danger of falling constantly because they work outside and have to deal with slippery and wet surfaces.

Which cruise ship workers most risk being hurt on the job?

Aside from the captain and others who navigate the boat, there are two types of employees who work on cruise ships: artists who have aspirations of being discovered by the entertainment industry and employees who hail from poor countries looking to see the world and to support their families. The latter is most likely to get injured while working aboard a cruise ship.

Supreme Court case could impact Jones Act

The Jones Act serves many purposes for seamen who need protection while working an essential job in the United States, among which is compensation for on-the-job injuries. Now, a new case will analyze if those maritime workers have access to compensation beyond the cost of said injuries if an unstable work vessel caused their suffering.
