How the Death on the High Seas Act can affect Louisianans

Louisiana laborers who toil at sea have higher rates of injury and death than most workers. Fishermen, oil-rig workers and dockworkers can be injured or killed in boat collisions or on oil platforms. In many cases, they or their families have trouble obtaining fair compensation to cover the costs of medical treatment, lost income and loss of companionship. These victims, however, may be able to find legal help through the federal Death on the High Seas Act of 1920.

Louisiana teens regarded as heroes after boating accident

For three teenagers from a Louisiana town, it was a weekend fun boating trip that turned a tad too adventurous. The three boys had gone to a nearby river for fishing when they heard loud screams. Two boats had collided; as a result of the impact, around 12 passengers fell into the river, causing offshore injuries. On hearing the cries for help, the boys rushed to the scene and stayed until the fisheries and fire departments arrived at the scene of the accident. What prevented the tragedy from escalating was the inherent skills of the teenagers in the face of danger. In fact, one of them had just passed a lifeguard test.
