Has a Maritime Accident Left You With Medical Bills? Find Out About Maintenance and Cure Coverage

Not only have you experienced a maritime accident in Texas that may have left you with an injury such as hypothermia, broken bones, or brain injury, but now your medical bills are piling up, too, and you need some relief. Medical bills can add up quickly. If you are out of work due to your injury, how are you going to pay for the medical care that you need?

While your insurance may take care of some of these costs, some procedures and tests may not be covered by your medical insurance provider. However, if you are considered a seaman under the Jones Act, there are federal laws that will provide for maintenance and cure expenses to be covered by your employer.

If you are entitled to maintenance and cure, but your employer has denied you these benefits, you may be able to recover damages against your employer. Texas and Gulf Coast maritime workers and seamen who are injured on the job need to know that there are specific rules to follow in order to obtain this compensation.

If you have been denied maintenance and cure compensation or if you would like to get your medical expenses covered by your employer, you should talk to a knowledgeable Texas maritime law firm.
Experienced offshore injury attorneys like Bill Voss can give you legal advice and establish if you have been wrongfully denied maintenance and cure payments.
