If you have been injured while working on a ship, boat, barge, offshore oil platform or harbor facility, you need compensation to support yourself while you recover. Without fair compensation, it can be difficult to pay your bills, get proper medical treatment, and support your family. An experienced lawyer can help you get all of the medical care and compensation that you deserve.
Under federal law, maritime, offshore, and longshore workers have significant rights to compensation. If you are covered by the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), or other laws, you are entitled to receive the following:
- Medical care
- Full wage benefits during your recovery
- Living expenses during your recovery
- Compensation for pain and suffering
- Compensation for future wage losses
