Abogado de lesiones por remolcadores en California Preston Easley Representa a los lesionados en CA y HI en accidentes relacionados con un remolcador

Accidentes de remolcadores

Puede que no sean tan glamorosos como los yates o cruceros, pero los remolcadores hacen el trabajo sucio del comercio marítimo, maniobrando barcazas, cargueros y otras embarcaciones grandes que entran y salen de puertos y canales abarrotados. Debido a la naturaleza de su trabajo, los remolcadores tienden a ser más compactos y de construcción más sólida que otros tipos de embarcaciones, y funcionan principalmente con combustible diesel. Los remolcadores también se utilizan con frecuencia en situaciones de emergencia, como rescates de cruceros o plataformas petrolíferas inutilizadas (por ejemplo, una flota de remolcadores puede arrastrar una plataforma dañada hasta la costa).

LOS PELIGROS QUE ENFRENTAN LOS TRABAJADORES, LA TRIPULACIÓN Y LOS PASAJEROS DE REMOLCADORES

Los remolcadores a menudo operan en condiciones de hacinamiento y / o peligrosas, lo que hace que los remolcadores sean especialmente susceptibles a las tipos de accidentes que puede herir (o incluso matar) a un tripulante desprevenido. No es raro que un remolcador choque o sea embestido por el bote que se supone que está remolcando, y la oportunidad de accidentes es mayor si varios remolcadores cooperan en el mismo trabajo. Además, los navegantes de los remolcadores están a merced de las mismas condiciones meteorológicas (tifones, huracanes, etc.) que son la pesadilla de todo aquel que se gana la vida en el mar.

Muchos remolcadores son de propiedad independiente y los propietarios trabajan con márgenes muy reducidos. Por esta razón, a menudo ocurre que un remolcador no ha recibido el mantenimiento adecuado, su tripulación no ha sido debidamente capacitada o no ha tenido suficiente personal, todo lo cual pone a la tripulación del remolcador en un mayor riesgo de lesiones. Es más probable que una tripulación fatigada calcule mal la distancia entre el remolcador y la barcaza que está remolcando, o que asegure el barco incorrectamente; una cuerda rota o un cabrestante suelto pueden provocar fácilmente lesiones graves o incluso la muerte.

ABOGADOS DE ACCIDENTES DE REMOLCADORES Y MUERTE INJUSTA

CONSULTA GRATUITA • SIRVIENDO A TODO HAWÁI Y CALIFORNIA

Lo importante que debe recordar, si usted o un ser querido ha resultado lesionado en un accidente de remolcador, es que sus derechos están garantizados por el Ley Jones, que permite a los tripulantes lesionados demandar al capitán y propietario del barco, e incluso a sus compañeros marineros, si se puede demostrar que su negligencia o imprudencia contribuyó al percance. Como mínimo, es posible que se requiera que las personas responsables cubran sus gastos de subsistencia mientras se recupera de sus lesiones, así como todas sus facturas médicas. En los casos más flagrantes de imprudencia o negligencia, como una embarcación no apta para navegar o un capitán ebrio, la Ley Jones le da derecho a demandar a la parte responsable por daños a largo plazo, incluida la pérdida de ingresos debido a dolor y sufrimiento crónicos.
