The inherent dangers of commercial and recreational diving are significant. Proper calculation of dive limits and adherence to other safety precautions are essential to prevention of catastrophic injuries and fatalities. Time, depth and the gas mixture used are all factors in setting no-decompression limits — and every dive and diver are unique.
Experienced Attorneys for Gulf Coast Victims of DCS and Other Dive Injuries
Operating outside dive limits substantially increases a diver’s risk of decompression sickness (DCS) — which can mean persistent joint pain, rashes, brain injury, paralysis and even death. Any maritime accident that may involve failure to observe and account for dive limits merits close examination and evaluation by an experienced attorney.
