Accidents at sea
Fishing is a dangerous occupation which leads to many injuries and even some fatalities. Accidents also happen on board boats and ships, and can occur if equipment which should not be on deck is not properly stowed away. If you slip, trip or fall on deck, it may be because of another person’s negligence and you may be able to file a personal injury compensation claim against the owner or captain of the boat, as they are responsible for the safety of all crew members.
