Specific federal laws protect the rights of maritime workers, including the Jones Act and the Death on the High Seas Act. As your attorneys, it’s our job to make sure that your employer, their lawyers, and big insurance companies don’t try to minimize your valid claim. We know the true value of your case and how much money you may need to treat your injuries and compensate you for other losses.
Federal laws permit you to file a claim similar to a personal injury lawsuit if you’re hurt while on the job. You can seek money for your medical care as well as consideration for your pain and suffering and other ways the maritime injuries affect your life. If your family lost a loved one in a maritime accident, you could have the option to file a wrongful death suit against a negligent employer, recovering compensation for your family’s financial losses. Let our tenacious attorneys get to work for you today.
Although federal laws give many rights to injured maritime workers, including the right to demand full and fair compensation, recovering the money you may be entitled to isn’t as straightforward as many think. Insurance companies may try to minimize your claim – if they don’t deny it outright!
To recover the compensation you’re entitled to, you and your lawyer must prove that your employer was negligent. That is, build a case showing that the employer abandoned their duty of care to make sure that employees were safe. Employers, predictably, aren’t ready to admit when they’ve cut corners or done something wrong.
Whether you’re working on an offshore rig, on the docks, or on a water vessel, you have the right to claim compensation for injuries after an accident. Do you need help filing a claim under the Jones Act? Are you curious about your options for a wrongful death claim if you lost a beloved family member? We can help.
