Losing a finger, hand, foot, arm or leg is a devastating injury. Unfortunately, the work that maritime workers perform with heavy equipment and flammable fuels put them at an increased risk of suffering these types of injuries. After the loss of a limb, a maritime worker may require extensive surgery and rehab services. The offshore worker may also require a prosthetic that must be replaced several times over the course of his/her lifetime. The maritime worker may need to be re-trained because he is unable to return to work offshore.
If you or a loved one has suffered a loss of limb caused by an offshore maritime accident, it is very important that you contact a highly skilled, offshore maritime injury lawyer immediately.
