Wake from a Barge? Boating Under the Influence of Alcohol? Hurricane? Crowded River?
Your maritime, boat, or offshore accident may have been caused by a wake from a barge, an alcohol-impaired boat operator, a natural disaster such as a hurricane, or simply crowding of the waterways.

Accounting for Needs after an Injury: Rehabilitation, Counseling
The accident has no doubt brought many other complications to your life. You may be permanently disabled as a result of your serious injury, and no longer able to work as before. You may require vocational rehabilitation. You may be in need of psychological counseling or psychiatric help to deal with depression brought on by your losses.
