Can I get compensation for a neck injury that occurred while working offshore?
Your medical bills in your offshore accident should be covered by your employer. You may be eligible for maintenance and cure payments, which is the compensation for your medical bills and part of your salary. If you are considered a seaman, then your medical bills, salary and other compensation should be covered under the Jones Act.
If your employer has denied you these benefits or is delaying compensation for your lost wages and medical bills, then you should speak with a Jones Act attorney immediately to find out your rights under this federal law.
