Diving Accidents Do Happen

Water is a crucial part of many industries in South Louisiana, so we know how devastating it is when a diving accident results in life-changing injuries. In commercial settings, companies are required to follow strict procedures, policies and regulations put forth by the U.S. Coast Guard to protect their divers. Unfortunately, diving accidents can result under circumstances that include (but are not limited to):

  • Poorly maintained equipment
  • Dive operator negligence
  • Unsafe water conditions
  • Dive partner negligence

When diving accidents cause unexpected challenges in the lives of you and your loved ones, you deserve proper compensation.
