Personal Injury

If you’re an attorney representing a vessel owner or operator that is fighting a personal injury claim then it will pay to have the experts on your side. 

3D Marine is adept at navigating the complexities of the US legal system and has an excellent track record of providing effective expert witness testimony.

What is personal injury? 

Personal injury is the legal term to describe an injury to the body, mind or emotions as opposed to injury to property.

Personal injuries can occur at sea on a variety of vessels and structures including ocean-going cargo vessels, tankers, offshore platforms, support vessels, tug and push boats, barges, and recreational vessels.

Common alleged injuries from crew members include slips, trips and falls, broken limbs, pier and dock accidents or accidents or injuries from repetitive work.

Why do you need personal injury claims support?

Isn’t your client’s word enough to fight a claim? 

Not necessarily.

Many personal injury claim cases involve minor injuries. However, once the plaintiff’s attorney becomes involved, back, neck or head injuries can be introduced to the case. 

Other times, a personal injury claim will be made after an employee has been fired or let go from service.

What’s more, in the US, maritime incidents and alleged injuries can be filed in either federal or state courts and any litigation is handled accordingly.

As the defence attorney, it’s vital that you are able to call upon the very best expert witnesses.

At 3D Marine our expert witnesses include Master Mariners with over 50 years’ experience in the maritime industry.

As such, these expert witnesses can provide exceptional levels of insight and analysis to help you defend your client. 

Our expert witnesses will thoroughly review the evidence, formulate their expert opinions and provide these opinions including the good, the bad and the ugly, along with the strengths and weaknesses of the case.

They focus on the facts; the plaintiff’s and witness actions, not the wider actions of your client.
