Technical Diving Accidents

Technical Diving Accidents

Danger and risks are everyday realities for technical divers. Physical discipline and experience are not always enough to prevent an accident, and diver safety is dependent on many factors. Although decompression sickness is perhaps the most prominent risk associated with “tec diving,” injuries and fatalities also occur in run-overs, accidents aboard dive boats and under other circumstances. Such traumatic events typically call for a claim for compensation under the Jones Act or other laws.

Comprehensive investigation is often the only way to determine the causes of a technical diving injury or death.
