What are a seaman's rights after a maritime injury off the Gulf Coast?

If you or someone you love was injured at sea in a maritime accident, you can bring a legal claim against the negligent party including the captain, crewmembers, or even the ship owner. In fact, if you or any seaman is injured during the course of your work, you may be able to sue for damages under the Jones Act.

However, not every injured offshore worker may be qualified under the Jones Act. To find out if you are entitled to legal rights under the Jones Act, talk to an offshore injury lawyer to find out your rights and if you qualify to receive benefits under the Jones Act .

Benefits that you may be entitled to include unearned wages, past and future wages, lost wages, and personal injury damages. You may also bring a claim for maintenance and cure; however, if your employer denies maintenance and cure, you may be able to seek punitive damages. In order to protect your legal rights, you need to speak with a skilled maritime accident lawyer regarding the Jones Act. Call the Voss Law Firm today at 888-614-7730 for a free legal consultation.
