Diving and Maritime Accidents

Representing Injured Divers - Toll Free: 1-800-523-5787

At the New Orleans law office of Leger & Shaw, our lawyers have nearly 35 years of experience dealing with personal injury and maritime law cases. Salvage and repair divers and other maritime workers may be covered by the Jones Act or Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA) in certain cases. We strive to utilize our extensive knowledge of these laws to determine where the negligence falls and who is responsible for paying for the injuries that were suffered.

Divers and maritime workers can suffer a range of catastrophic injuries, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Brain damage from lack of oxygen

We can aggressively investigate the accident in which the worker was injured to determine who was at fault and if any defective products were involved.

Our firm can assist you in understanding your rights in seeking justice for the death of your loved one. Though we know it will not bring your family member back, we can also pursue compensation to help you weather financial difficulties that may accompany this emotional time.

If you have been injured in a diving accident, there may be several ways in which we can pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered.
