San Diego Shipbuilding Attorneys

From engineers to welders to electricians, the United States commercial shipping industry provides jobs to roughly 50,000 workers to build and maintain non-Navy vessels throughout the year. Unfortunately, however, shipbuilding is a very dangerous profession that can result in many of the same injuries as those found at regular construction sites in addition to injuries specific to the shipbuilding industry.

If you have suffered an injury while shipbuilding and believe someone else was at fault, you may be eligible for financial compensation. At Ritter & Associates, we are committed to helping you recover compensation to help pay for medical bills, lost wages, and other damages you may have suffered as a result of your injury. To discuss your case, contact a skilled San Diego shipbuilding attorney today at 619-296-0123 and schedule a consultation.

Common Shipbuilding Injuries

Whether you build cruise ships, container ships, or general cargo ships, working on these large vessels can be hazardous to your health and safety. Some of the most common injuries suffered in shipbuilding accidents include the following:

  • Electrical shock due to working in wet environments
  • Respiratory problems from inhaling toxic fumes
  • Broken bones
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe lacerations or loss of limbs

Not only can these injuries cause you to miss work, but they can also result in life-altering disabilities. If a careless person or party has caused you to suffer a shipbuilding injury, you can hold them accountable and fight for the compensation you deserve.
