About San Diego, California
Although it is known as the birthplace of California, San Diego is the second-most populous city in the state after Los Angeles. The growth of the city is largely thanks to its port which has attracted the military, international trade, research, tourism, and manufacturing to the region.
While the harbor has brought great economic growth and opportunities to San Diego, it is also a source of great sorrow. The harbor is a hazardous work environment and many maritime workers are injured or even killed as a result of the dangerous conditions they are exposed to. Accidents can occur on land as well as at sea. In fact, there were 4,168 boat accidents recorded off the coast of California in 2019. 37 percent of the boating accidents in 2016 occurred in San Diego county.
If you have been injured in a maritime accident contact the Law Offices of Preston Easley and get started in seeking compensation for your injuries.
