Know Your Legal Options After an Offshore Accident
Many maritime workers are not aware of the extensive legal protections that can provide for them when they are injured while on the job. Our lawyers are passionate about making these protections accessible to injured workers.
You have legal options and may be entitled to financial compensation under legislation such as:
- General Maritime Law: This includes principles such as the right to maintenance and cure and seaworthy vessels.
- Jones Act: This federal law, formally known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, enables injured seamen to hold their employers accountable for injuries caused by negligence.
- Death on the High Seas Act: Enables a deceased seaman’s surviving dependents, such as a spouse or child, to sue the party responsible for the deadly accident, such as a negligent employer, for financial compensation.
- Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act: This federal law can cover an injured longshoreman or harbor worker's medical bills, lost income, rehabilitation, and sometimes more.
A lawyer with experience in maritime law can work to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve. So don’t wait.
