Offshore Boat Drowning Accidents
Did you lose a loved one in an offshore drowning?
Offshore workers put their lives on the line each and every day they step foot on an oil rig, tanker boat, vessel, barge or commercial fishing boat. Unfortunately, these offshore workers are always at risk for a drowning accident, even if they are naturally good swimmers. Virtually anything can go wrong when the worker least expects it, whether the worker falls off a tanker boat or a massive wave pushes him off, he can easily lose his life in a drowning accident in a matter of a few short minutes.
Maritime workers all throughout the Gulf of Mexico, Alabama, and Florida, Texas as well as other areas are prone to having an offshore drowning accident. Due to their routinely hazardous conditions, seamen, dockworkers, and oil and gas employees can easily fall off a boat or be pushed off by a large and forceful wave of water. Diving accidents, and lost overboard deaths take the lives of offshore workers each and every year, often times leaving behind loved ones in their wake.
Fatal drowning accidents and
near-drowning accidents are all too real for offshore workers and it's a risk they must take in order to get the job done, whether the worker is tragically killed in a drowning accident or if they sustain serious and irreversible brain damage in a near-drowning accident, their lives are forever changed for the worse. If you have lost a loved one to a
drowning accident, contact a
drowning accident lawyer as soon as possible and before you speak with the insurance company.
