Why Hire a Marine Injury Attorney
To win your maritime injury claim, it is important that you select an attorney with the experience and knowledge to navigate the complicated legal process. The laws and regulations governing maritime workers are very different from those covering employees who work on the land.
The most essential of these maritime laws is the Jones Act, which allows sailors to claim compensations for injuries caused by the negligence of the owner of the boat or vessel, the employer, or the crew member. The Jones Act provides maintenance (living expenses) and healing (medical expenses) payments to injured maritime workers.
Other laws and regulations that may be related to your case include the Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA), the Port Workers ‘and Stevedores’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), and the Continental Outer Platforms Act (OCSLA).
