Fighting for the Rights of Professional Divers
Off-shore divers and oil rig workers have a difficult profession. It involves long hours, physical stamina, and of course, a great deal of danger. When professional divers get hurt, the employers, boat owners and insurance companies rarely bend over backwards to make sure the injured diver is properly compensated.
At Murphy Law Firm LLC in Louisiana, we represent injured divers. With more than 30 combined years of legal experience, our Baton Rouge diver accident attorneys will make sure you do not become a victim twice by accepting less than what your case is truly worth.
"I specifically opened Murphy Law Firm to help make sure my injured clients would get fair and adequate compensation for their maritime and offshore accident injuries. I have a family myself, so I know how important it is to get the compensation you need, so that you can keep providing for your family, especially if you cannot go back to work. This is not about getting rich; this is about fair compensation. Call me." ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy ∙ Contact Murphy Law Firm
Injury Risks for Professional Diver
Professional divers can suffer accidents and injuries that result from:
- Faulty face masks: Obviously, if a diver's face mask breaks or malfunctions, that diver will not be able to get proper oxygen.
- Hypothermia: Because the water temperature can be extremely cold, hypothermia is a common risk for professional divers, leading to heart failure or other life-threatening symptoms.
- Negligence: The owner/employer, the other members of the crew or a third party could make incompetent errors that cause serious injuries.
