We offer a free consultation for injured shipyard workers and repair workers and have collected millions over the years for injured workers.

What Should You Do Following An Injury at a Shipyard?

If you work in a shipyard, you already know that shipyards often have multiple employers working on various parts of a project. Following an injury, it is important to get medical attention as soon as possible to evaluate and treat your injuries. You have a right to select your own doctor and get proper medical care for your injuries. It is important that you fill out an accident report for your employer as soon as possible following an injury to document the claim. In the report, make certain to document the cause of your injury and the contact information for all witnesses. What unsafe condition caused your injury? Did a product or equipment fail? Was an employee of another company responsible for your injury? What other companies worked in the area and what were the other companies doing in that area? Who was responsible for the overall jobsite? Were safety regulations violated? These are all questions that will become important when looking at whether you can assert a claim for an injury at a shipyard. If you have questions about whether you have a third-party claim following an injury at a shipyard, contact one of our award-winning shipyard injury at attorneys at 206.624.8844 for a free consultation.
