Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer, usually affecting the lungs.  Its symptoms are shortness of breath, painful breathing, chest pain, unusual lumps of tissue under the skin on your chest, weight loss, and dry cough.  The primary risk factor for mesothelioma, from a litigation standpoint, is asbestos exposure.  Asbestos is often found in insulation, cement, brakes, shingles, flooring and many other products. The most frequently afflicted workers are those working in factories, mines and shipyards.  The disease is latent, often taking 20-30 after exposure, before onset.  Some people with years of asbestos exposure never develop mesothelioma; others, with very brief exposure or secondhand exposure, develop the disease.   

It is also important to note that the Gulf States, due to their location, are hotspot for violent winds, hurricanes, and tornados.  Structural damage from a storm can cause asbestos fibers to disperse in the air, becoming a danger to everyone living and working in the area of the storm.  Thus, asbestos should be closely monitored in homes, even if contained in the structure.

Maritime Law

The Gulf Coast region is a water wonderland.  Water-related industry and tourism flourish in the region.  From an economic standpoint, these industries create millions of jobs; from a safety standpoint, with powerful bodies of water, storms, risky sporting activities, industrial equipment and chemicals, accidents, causing serious injury and death, are inevitable.  Often, these accidents are caused by carelessness, negligence or the reckless behavior or others and are grounds for a lawsuit.

Typical injury and death accidents are related to:

  • Un-seaworthy vessels
  • Collision or crashes
  • Navigation errors
  • Fires or explosions
  • Storms
  • Safety violations
  • Diving
  • Helicopter or small craft crashes
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Waterway traffic violations
  • Heavy lifting injuries
  • Falls
  • Drowning
  • Decompression sickness
  • Defective equipment and crush injuries.

Maritime law is the principal body of laws in the U.S. that provides legal recourse for injuries arising from seas, lakes, navigable rivers and other navigable bodies of water.  Both federal and state courts have jurisdiction over these cases.  Maritime tort cases may involve the following federal statutes:

  • Jones Act: provides seaman - or in wrongful death cases, their personal representatives - the right to sue employers for employment related injuries or wrongful death at sea.
  • Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act: provides workers’ compensation for injured non-seaman personnel.
  • Death on the High Seas Act: gives certain relatives of persons wrongfully killed on the high sea, outside of state territorial waters, a right to sue.

Railroad Accidents

Railroad accidents are also common in the Gulf States. If you are a railroad worker who has suffered a railroad injury, the Federal Employees Liability Act (FELA) applies to you.  Engineers, operators, conductors, yardmasters, foreman laborers, and other railroad workers who have suffered an on-the-job railroad injury can seek compensation for their injuries under the FELA. 

Injuries can result from:

  • Switching service accidents
  • Collisions with a motor vehicle, pedestrian, or other train
  • Derailments
  • Mechanical failures
  • Signal defects

Oil Rig Injuries

There are oil rig and oil-related industries throughout the Gulf Coast region.  These are dangerous workplace environments and injuries can happen.  Oil rig, oil field, or pipeline construction injuries are all possibilities.  Injuries may occur from explosions or fires on oil or gas fields, defective equipment, falls, chemical exposure, oil derrick or work over rig accidents.   Prompt medical care and prompt investigation are crucial to physical and financial recovery.
