Maritime Injury Lawyer in North Carolina

Working offshore can be extremely grueling, both mentally and physically. The dangerous, sometimes life-threatening risk of working on a vessel or offshore rig turns many able-bodied folks away from the grueling work. However, several workers remain in the industry, trusting their employers to provide them with the equipment and gear necessary to perform their job safely. If an employer cuts corners or fails to secure the appropriate tools and machines, it can lead to a serious explosion, crash, or other accident.

Maritime Accidents & Causes
Working on a rig or vessel can be dangerous, which is why employers are responsible for providing their workers with the appropriate training, safety equipment, and tools to perform their job safely. If an employer, manager, owner, or other liable party fails to do this, they could be liable for any resulting injuries.
Maritime accidents can involve any of the following workers:
- Fishing boat workers
- Oil rig workers
- Ship members
Taking Action After a Serious Injury
If you were harmed in a maritime accident, you need to work with an attorney who has a thorough understanding of The Jones Act. This Act is a federal law that enables injured maritime workers to secure damages for injuries that occur on the job. Also referred to as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, this law can help support your claim and enable our attorneys to secure maximum compensation on your behalf.
Maritime injuries can be extremely serious due to the nature of the work, which is why pursuing damages is so crucial to help you get back on your feet. Whether you suffered serious head injuries, burns, broken bones, spinal injuries, amputation injuries, chemical exposure, or other damages, we’re here to help you obtain what’s rightfully yours.
