Cargo ships, also referred to as container ships, are responsible for transporting the vast majority of the world’s goods between continents.

The ships themselves are among the largest ever constructed, and they sail through nearly all types of conditions. The ships are also usually laden with significant amounts of cargo, all of which must be properly secured.

There are many hazards maritime workers face that are made more dangerous due to the nature of work and life at sea, including severe weather, the use of power tools and machinery, working in restricted spaces, and isolation from society.

This is why if you’ve been involved in any type of maritime accident, you should seek legal advice from an experienced maritime attorney.

Shipyard accidents are usually related to the constant construction and salvage that takes place at these facilities.

Shipyards are necessary for the continuing function of maritime commerce, so safety is a high priority. But accidents happen. Some of the most common causes of shipyard accidents include:

⚠️ Mechanical accidents

⚠️ Fire and heat

⚠️ Hazardous materials

⚠️ Falls

⚠️ Water-related accidents

Ferry accidents can have disastrous consequences, in no small part because these specialized vessels are often loaded with passengers.

Because ferries themselves come in a variety of designs and operate on distinctly different routes, ferry accidents can occur for countless and unpredictable reasons.

When injuries occur as a result of these accidents, the knowledgeable attorneys at Montagna Maritime Law can help you ensure your rights are protected.

Do you know how much fuel cargo ships use regularly?

A large cargo ship uses 150-250 tons of fuel per day, which is enough to fill 3,770 smart cars!

An unfortunate factor of maritime work is that death is a real possibility. And every year, many of those deaths related to maritime accidents were avoidable.

There are three acts that cover seamen in the case of wrongful death at sea:

⛴Death on High Seas Act

⛴The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act

⛴The Jones Act

The statute of limitations under the Public Vessels Act is two years from the date of your accident, compared to three years under the Jones Act. That means you only have two years to claim compensation.

It’s important you understand your rights and what you’re entitled to under this specific area of maritime law. When you speak to an experienced attorney at Montagna Maritime Law who is familiar with the Public Vessels Act, we can inform you of your rights and help you file an injury claim.

Dredging is necessary, but often dangerous, maritime work.

Due to the operational roles of dredging vessels themselves, dredge accidents typically happen near shore or in shallow waters. Dredge worker injuries, however, can still be covered and litigated under maritime law.

That’s because the operation of dredgers is incredibly important to maintaining sea channels, shipping lanes, and waterways in busy ports. 🚢

Shrimpers, as they are commonly referred to, operate in a wide variety of environments, including both cold and warm water.

The Gulf of Mexico is a particularly important region for shrimpers, but it’s not the only area in the United States to see commercial sh*****ng activity. 🦐

Commercial fishing of any variety is an exceptionally hazardous occupation, and sh*****ng is no exception. Shrimp boat accidents can lead to permanent and life-threatening injuries.

Minimizing the occurrence and the severity of shrimp boat accidents is the responsibility of everyone on board a vessel.

Generally, when a doctor thinks that a patient is at maximum medical improvement (MMI), the seaman will be discharged from care and the maintenance and cure benefits will stop. The seaman may not have fully recovered from the injury, but their condition isn’t expected to improve any further.

Employers are obligated under maritime law to pay maintenance and cure benefits to injured or ill crew. This is an accepted and well-established part of general maritime law. In fact, the law is clear about the rights of injured or sick seamen to maintenance and cure, regardless of what caused the injury or who is at fault.

Accidents involving container vessels can happen for any number of reasons, from human error to sudden storms. In 2015, the container ship El Faro sank off the coast of the Bahamas as it tried to make a run through Hurricane Joaquin.

But the Coast Guard investigation also assigned blame to the ship’s owners, captain, and crew — meaning that any such disaster is likely caused by systemic problems.

If you’ve been in a maritime accident - your fault or not - you may be entitled to compensation. Call today for a free consultation (877) 622-8100

The ocean is the most dangerous workplace on the planet. US maritime industries are found in nearly every state, employing more than 400,000 workers across the nation.

From slips and falls to equipment failures, collisions, fires, and unsafe work practices and negligence, offshore injuries usually require costly medical care — sometimes long-term.

So, make sure to take the proper precautions before heading out to sea like JAY-Z did here!😂

A dry dock combines all of the tasks of shipbuilding, construction, and naval facilities.

As such, most dry docks are hazardous work environments, and preventing accidents and injuries requires significant effort, training, and professionalism.

Even still, dry dock accidents can and do occur. Some of the most common types of dry dock accidents include:

⛴ Flooding

⛴ Hazardous materials

⛴ Machinery accidents

⛴ Slipping vessel

⛴ Slipping and falling

Did you know that the most common targets for modern pirates are cargo ships, tankers and container ships?

Economic conditions in piracy-prone areas have led some people to resort to illegal activity 🏴‍☠️

The ships are most vulnerable when they're berthed or anchored, so be on the lookout when stopping ashore!
