Louisiana Decompression Sickness Lawyers for Commercial Divers
Louisiana Commercial Diving Injury Lawyers Experienced In Decompression Sickness (DCS) in Diving Accident Cases
Arterial gas embolism and decompression sickness (“the bends”) are among the most serious and common barotrauma injuries faced by commercial divers.
Together, they are classified as decompression illness (DCI) and result when proper safety precautions are not followed, in order to allow for off-gassing of nitrogen absorbed by the body during the dive. Proper supervision of commercial and recreational divers is a necessary step to reduce the risk.
Divers who are allowed to descend too quickly, are required to operate beyond dive limits, or are not allowed proper stop time during their ascension are at greatest risk.
