Working with a New Jersey offshore injury lawyer is a wise choice if you are a maritime worker who has been injured, or if you have lost a loved one as the result of an offshore accident. Maritime workers have specific rights when it comes to accidents, injuries, and illnesses that are related to their jobs. The Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, Death on the High Seas Act, and other maritime laws outline specific benefits and legal rights for these workers and their families. A competent attorney can ensure one's rights under applicable maritime laws are fully protected.
