I am not qualified to provide professional advice. But, if you, or anyone else, has just been involved in an offshore accident, you should seek medical attention immediately if you or anyone else appears to be injured.
You should notify the authorities or coast guard immediately to ensure everyone is safe and secure. Once it is safe to do so, gather all relevant information, including where the accident occurred, who was involved, and any potential witnesses.
It’s recommended that you speak with an experienced offshore accident attorney, who can help you understand your legal rights and options for seeking compensation for your injuries or losses. Do not sign any documents or make any statements without first consulting with an attorney, as these can be used against you later in court.
Most importantly, take care of yourself both physically and mentally during this difficult time. Seek the support of your loved ones and seek professional help if needed.
