Maritime work is the lifeline of the state’s economy. With several ports located along the Louisiana gulf coast, it is no surprise that countless Louisiana citizens depend on the maritime industry as a means of support. Unfortunately, the dangers associated with such a profitable industry have caused thousands of offshore workers to fall victim to serious and deadly injuries. The most common causes of injury to offshore workers include:
- Untrained or Poorly-Trained Crew
- Poorly-Maintained Safety Equipment
- Crewmember Failure to Follow Safety Procedures
- Inadequate Safety Procedures

- Defects Onboard the Vessel
