CREWMAN SUFFERS NECK INJURY ABOARD MISSISSIPPI RIVER SHRIMPING VESSEL


A 37-year old crewman had to be evacuated after suffering a neck injury while working aboard a shrimping vessel near New Orleans on Tuesday. The man was transported to West Jefferson Hospital for treatment.

Neck injuries are particularly dangerous and occur all too frequently on vessels of all kinds. Some factors that can contribute to these sorts of injuries include overly slippery decks, hazardous layouts of ships, dangerous or defective equipment, or the lack of a handrail. If you have been injured while working aboard a ship, be sure to find out about your rights under maritime law as soon as possible.
