Jim Gooding, Sara Maleki, and GLP Attorneys were recognized by TopVerdict.com for obtaining one of the Top 100 Personal Injury Settlements in the United States in the year 2021 for the results achieved in the Galstad v. Kiewit/General/Manson, et al. case. The case involved a spinal injury sustained by a diver working on the 520 Bridge in Seattle.
Commercial diving is one of the most dangerous marine careers available, with divers at risk of drowning or hypoxia every time they perform a job. While professional divers may be owed workers’ compensation benefits after an accident, they could also be able to file a lawsuit for their injury costs if they are covered under maritime laws. Some maritime laws provide wage replacement and medical payments, while others allow workers to take action against vessel owners if unsafe conditions caused the accident.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a commercial diving accident, contact an attorney to have the facts of the claim reviewed for free as soon as possible. Please call 800-273-5005 or email our attorneys for a complimentary case assessment.
