Spine injuries are particularly traumatic because they may permanently affect motor control and sensation throughout the body. Partial or total paralysis may also result from a spine injury. Unfortunately, a maritime worker with a spine injury may incur substantial medical and rehab expenses. The injured maritime worker will likely never again work offshore and must be retrained for a new vocation. In some cases, the offshore worker may never even be able to work again, resulting in substantial financial hardship.
If you or a loved one has suffered an offshore maritime injury, it is very important that you contact a highly skilled, offshore maritime injury lawyer immediately.
