I had a heart attack while working on a cruise ship. Is my employer still responsible for compensating me?

Most of us think that their employer has to be at fault in order to be compensated for injuries; however, this is not the case for maritime workers covered under the Jones Act. Employers do not have to be at fault for a crew member to still be compensated for an offshore injury.

This applies in the case of a heart attack. Since you suffered a heart attack aboard a cruise ship, you may still be entitled to compensation for maintenance and cure payments under the Jones Act. Even though your heart attack was not the fault of your employer, they are responsible to compensate any crew member for their offshore injuries.

If your employer is not compensating you fairly or denying compensation under the Jones Act, you need to call a knowledgeable offshore injury attorney who has experience with the Jones Act.
