Houston Shrimp Boat Accident Lawyers
Shrimp Boat Accidents
Shrimping is a demanding job and along with the hard work comes a degree of risk. If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, maimed, or lost while working on a shrimp boat, it is important for your family to receive counsel from a Texas maritime lawyer. Simmons and Fletcher are committed to achieving justice for those involved in sea injury cases.
We understand the dangers and consequences involved aboard shrimp boats: limbs can become tangled and amputated in nets, crewmen can be lost overboard, or sometimes owners are more focused on profit than the safety of the crew. Negligence can be proven if weather advisories are ignored and the shrimping crew is put in danger. The boat owner and its captain have an obligation to the crew to make safe decisions about when to sail and when not to. If your captain put profits over safety or failed to train a new hand resulting in your injury, give us a call.
