Aggressively Pursuing Compensation on Your Behalf
The Jones Act is a federal statute that protects injured crewmembers, allowing these individuals to hold their employers responsible for negligence. Unfortunately, many cruise ship companies attempt to shirk responsibility and often deny recovery to deserving crewmembers. Injuries sustained at sea are serious and can include:
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Lifting injuries to arms and shoulders
Employers are required to supply their injured employees with "maintenance and cure" during the course of recovery. Maintenance and cure includes the room and board of the injured seaman while they recover, as well as all necessary medical expenses. Whether your employer has failed to supply you with these benefits or has significantly underpaid your claim, the best time to take action is now.
