Representing Family Members Who Have Lost A Loved One On The Gulf Of Mexico
Spouses and family members of mariners know that every time their loved ones go to sea, they face the risk that they won’t return. Hurricanes and other storms can cause boats to capsize, sink or throw a crew member overboard. But even in calm seas, mariners and passengers can die in onboard accidents.
Unfortunately, some fatal accidents occur because captains or shipowners place their crews in unnecessarily hazardous conditions. If you believe someone’s wrongdoing or negligence could have caused or contributed to the death of your family member, you may want to speak with an attorney about your options for pursuing a wrongful death claim.
