There are many reasons why commercial diving accidents occur, but many are due to unsafe dive conditions due to employers who fail to follow OSHA safety guidelines. If you have been injured through a round window rupture, contaminated gas, differential pressure, faulty or improperly maintained equipment, improperly trained crew, or inadequate supervision, let our aggressive legal team get to work putting your claim together in order to maximize your potential settlement. Injuries can occur due to carelessness with incorrect air/gas mixtures, incorrect compression tables, or uncontrolled decompression. Fatal injuries and severe damages can also happen when there is a drowning or near-drowning accident, an offshore construction accident, an out-of-air emergency accident, or an underwater welding accident or explosion. When any of these instances occur and injure a diver or seamen, you can get help from an experienced legal professional who knows how to represent your rights.
