Is Your Maritime Injury So Serious That You Need a Lawyer

Q
How do I know if the injury I suffered on my commercial fishing boat is serious enough for me to call a lawyer?
A

There are many types of injuries that can occur if you are employed on a commercial fishing vessel that works in the Atlantic Ocean. Some of those injuries are significantly worse than others. However, you do not need to have the worst injury in order to contact a maritime accident lawyer.

Ask Yourself These Questions When Deciding Whether to Call a Lawyer

As you decide how to protect yourself in the aftermath of your accident, ask yourself:

  • Did my injury require medical attention?
  • Did I lose any time from work because of my injuries?
  • Do I have any questions about my recovery from these injuries?

If you can answer yes to any one of these questions then your injury is serious enough for you to call a lawyer.

There Is No Downside to Making the Call

You have nothing to lose by contacting an experienced maritime attorney to discuss your case. If you do not have claim that is worth pursuing or if you have already been offered fair compensation for your injuries—the lawyer will tell you that, and you can be assured that all of your legal rights have been protected.

Alternatively, if you have a valid claim and can pursue a fair recovery then your lawyer will tell you that and advise you about the steps that you can take to protect your legal rights and potential recovery.
