The Causes of Vessel Accidents
In handling a vessel accident case, an attorney must thoroughly investigate the facts to determine the cause of the accident. Common factors leading to vessel accidents include:
- Careless operation of the vessel
- Poorly maintained safety equipment
- Crew members untrained in safety procedures
- Negligence on the part of crew members
- Defective equipment
It is important that your attorney be familiar with the Jones Act and maritime law statutes. Our firm can help you make sure your vessel accident case falls into the right hands. Your compensation and peace of mind depend upon it.
