Whether they involve offshore workers or individuals boating for pleasure, offshore boat drowning deaths are devastating to the friends and families involved. Any individual who steps foot onto a boat is at risk of an accident, but these tragedies occur when least expected. While some can occur in particularly bad weather, others happen when the water is calm. Whatever the circumstances, The Doan Law Firm, P.C. can help protect the rights of offshore boat drowning and accident victims and their families. Attorney Jimmy Doan has more than 15 years of experience in the aquatic safety business. His team is dedicated to fighting for fair compensation for clients nationwide.
If a loved one has been injured or killed in an offshore boat drowning or accident, figuring out next steps can be overwhelming. Hiring an experienced drowning lawyer can relieve some of that burden. A knowledgeable drowning attorney can investigate the accident, determining if another party is liable, whether in part or in full, for your loved one's accident. For example, if an offshore worker was subjected to hazardous conditions that led to his or her injury or death, the employer may be held legally responsible. Similarly, if a deep-sea fishing company failed to follow safety regulations, the company or boat owner may be liable for a passenger's accident.
Drowning deaths and near-drowning incidents can change lives forever, so it is crucial to have a skilled drowning lawyer advocating for victims and their families.
