    Maritime Injury Law and The Role Of Jones Act

     

    Maritime Law, or Maritime Admiralty Law, with roots extending back to history, continues to govern the complex world of maritime trade and worker protection. A key component of this legal framework is the Jones Act, which provides a mechanism for maritime workers to claim compensation for injuries incurred on boats and offshore  —areas not typically covered by state law.

    With extensive experience in maritime, Jones Act, and offshore cases, Mokaram Law Firm expertly handles these intricate legal matters. Our team of maritime accident lawyers, boasting over X years of combined expertise, is committed to defending the rights of maritime workers and ensuring they receive the justice they deserve.

    Our maritime accident attorneys specialize in aiding maritime injured workers in securing rightful compensation. This complex field often involves navigating federal workers’ compensation claims rather than traditional lawsuits. Our approach, therefore, focuses on detailed documentation of the client’s injuries to ensure they receive the total compensation they deserve rather than proving employer negligence.

    Seek The Best Compensation With Our Jones Act Attorneys

    In the case of maritime accidents, workers have the legal right to pursue litigation against their employer under the provisions of the Jones Act and General Maritime Law. Our maritime injury lawyers sort offshore accidents and get you the best compensation you deserve.

    This encompasses all medical expenses stemming from the injury—past, present, and future. This covers emergency treatments, hospital stays, surgical procedures, medications, physical therapy sessions, and any specialized medical attention required.

    Wages lost during the recovery period, as well as compensation for any diminished earning capacity if the victim cannot resume work at their previous capacity following the accident.

    Compensation addresses the physical and emotional distress caused by the injuries, aiming to alleviate the non-economic effects such as chronic pain and emotional suffering.

    In case of fatalities, the victim’s family can seek compensation for wrongful death, including funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and emotional pain of losing a loved one.   

    Injured? Contact Us Now!

    NOTE: Be cautious of early settlement offers from employers and insurers following maritime accidents. These offers, typically presented as quick, lump-sum payments, may require you to waive your legal rights. Such agreements can often be misleading, potentially depriving injured maritime workers of the full compensation they are entitled to. Employers and insurance companies might use these tactics to capitalize on the immediate financial needs of injured workers, pushing them into accepting less favorable terms. To ensure your rights are fully protected, consult with a seasoned maritime accident attorney at Mokaram Law Firm.

      FAQ's

      Frequently Asked Questions

      After a maritime injury, it is important to seek medical help even if you think your medical injuries are minor. Document all the injuries and medical treatments related to the injury. Report the incident to the authorities as required by the company protocols. Lastly, consult with a maritime accident lawyer to get compensation for the injuries you have endured.

      To be covered by the Jones Act, you must first qualify as a seaman. This includes workers spending a substantial portion of their time (at least 30%) working on vessels engaged in maritime activity. The ship must be operational and capable of navigating waterways. You’re likely protected under the Jones Act if you meet these criteria. For personalized guidance, consult with a maritime law attorney. 

      The worth of a maritime injury depends on its severity, medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Each case is unique, so it is always best to consult with a maritime injury lawyer.

      As a seaman or fisherman, your rights include a safe working environment, maintenance and cure benefits for on-the-job injuries or illnesses, the right to sue your employer for negligence under the Jones Act, and protection against retaliation for reporting safety concerns or seeking compensation for injuries.

      As a Jones Act seaman, you can claim different types of damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain and mental suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, disability, disfigurement, and loss of future earning capacity. You can also claim punitive damages if there is employer negligence or willful misconduct.

      Maritime law, or admiralty law, describes the legal framework, conventions, and rules that regulate marine activities and challenges on navigable waters. The pact is comprehensive and includes all the legal issues relevant to maritime affairs, such as maritime trade, shipping, navigation, marine insurance, salvage, personal injury claims by seamen, environmental regulations, and so on.
