Common Causes Of Commercial Diving Burn Injuries
Commercial divers are well-aware of the dangers of burns resulting from underwater welding and cutting equipment, and explosions. Employers have the responsibility to ensure that commercial dives are properly supervised and the SCUBA and underwater equipment have been maintained and set up properly for safe use underwater or on deck. Commercial divers who suffer a serious burn injury are typically eligible to file for medical treatment and lost wages under provisions of the federal Jones Act covering U.S. maritime law. Our attorneys have a strong record of representing commercial divers in complex Jones Act cases against employers, contracting agents, and manufacturers and distributors of faulty diving equipment.
