McAllen and San Antonio Longshoreman Injury Lawyer
Longshoremen have an undeniably difficult job, not only because of the physical nature of their occupation but also due to the numerous workplace hazards they face every day. In order to keep longshoremen as safe as possible, employers are responsible for implementing and adhering to appropriate safety guidelines, such as supplying and requiring the use of hard hats. Without proper protocol in place, longshoremen could be subjected to devastating accidents and life-changing injuries.
In addition to the physical pain and suffering associated with longshoreman injuries, workers in this position could also face hefty medical bills and lost wages during recovery. Worse, injured longshoremen may be incapable of returning to their jobs yet unable to find other types of suitable occupations. For these reasons, longshoremen who suffer injuries as a result of their occupation may be entitled to pursue compensation for their damages.
