Commercial Diving Accidents

Offshore---Commercial-Diving---shutterstock_101081065When many people think of the offshore industry, they picture things like oil rigs and large cargo ships.  But one aspect of the maritime industry that they may not think of  is commercial diving. 

Divers are an integral part of the maritime industry.  Many vessels are repaired at dry docks.  However some vessels cannot be easily transported to land for repairs.  In these cases, commercial divers are used to complete inspections and work on the vessel while it is still in the water.  Divers operate under increasing pressure as they go deeper and deeper under the water.  If anything goes wrong in this process, the diver could be at risk for serious injury or death. 

If you or a family member has been seriously injured or killed as a result of a commercial diving accident, it is very important that you contact a highly skilled, offshore maritime injury lawyer immediately.  Learn about your legal rights from an experienced offshore maritime injury attorney by filling out our free, no obligation case review form located on this website.
