Maritime laws are different for injured seamen. These are those who work as captain or part of crew of a vessel, in addition to any other person who whose job is near or the water. The Courts oversee the compensation process. There is no administrative tribunal or body which would handle any marine injury claim if you qualify as a seaman. All such claims under admiralty law have to be filed in a state or a federal court. These lawsuits are the only real way to preserve your rights to get compensation for your injuries. In some ways, marine injury claims can actually provide you more compensation than a traditional workers’ compensation suit.
Seamen are legally entitled to sue their employers and the owners of vessels for damages and get “maintenance and cure” benefits, regardless of any liability. Only a seasoned Carabin Shaw maritime lawyer can be of help to you with the procedural and legal complexities that will confront you when you seek fair and just compensation.
