Shrimp Boat Accident Attorney

Accidents on Commercial Shrimp Boats

If you are a worker in the Gulf of Mexico, you are likely no stranger to the shrimping industry.

Many residents of Gulf States like Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Texas are home to maritime workers who find their employment in the shrimping industry. Shrimp boats are not uncommon to these waters, because a huge portion of America's shrimp comes from this region. The demand is high, but the recent Gulf oil spill has put a damper on shrimping operations. Those who work in the industry have been hard-pressed to come up with a product because the oil killed and contaminated such a large portion of the shrimp.

The oil spill is not the only trouble that the maritime industry in the Gulf Coast is facing. Those who work in the commercial fishing and shrimping industries are at a high risk of facing accidents and injury. According to statistics, fishing and shrimping are among some of the United States' most dangerous jobs. This is likely due to the physically demanding nature of the work environment. If you are a shrimp boat worker, you fully understand these types of dangers. You may be prone to deck accidents, falls, head injuries, and many other types of accidents. If you were injured, you are likely covered under some type of maritime law and can get help from an offshore injury attorney.
