Working in the maritime industry can be dangerous. Seamen, harbor workers, and longshoremen may face a number of hazards every day, but many are avoided by proper training and implementation of safety measures. If a vessel owner, maritime employer, or crew member is negligent or makes a mistake, however, a worker may be seriously injured. Immediately involving a New York offshore injury attorney is one of the most important steps that an injured maritime worker can take. If you were working and were injured in an accident or were diagnosed with an occupational illness, you may have the right to seek maintenance and cure benefits that will cover medical bills and will enable you to provide for yourself and your family while you are unable to work. The Jones Act, Death on the High Seas Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, and other maritime laws may offer you the ability to seek benefits for various expenses and losses. A maritime injury lawyer can explain what benefits you may be entitled to receive.
