We use extensive resources, including top-notch computer technology, accident reconstruction experts and other expert witnesses to help our clients recover the maximum compensation available to them.
Beware The Most Common Causes Of Tugboat Injuries
Even the most cautious seaman can experience a tugboat accident. Some common causes of accidents aboard tugboats include:
- Collisions with other maritime vehicles
- Slip-and-falls on slippery decks
- Trip-and-falls on improperly stored equipment
- Transfers between barges and tugboats
- Faulty navigational equipment
- Hawker (metal rope) injuries
