Who pays for my medical bills after an offshore accident?
Don't give up too soon. A skilled lawyer will be able to determine if you are covered by maintenance and cure. Your insurance may take care of a portion of these costs, or your employer may cover the costs (if you are determined to be a seaman covered under the Jones Act).
Federal laws provide for maintenance and cure expenses to be covered by your employer under the Jones Act. To determine if you are entitled to these benefits, call a Gulf Coast maritime attorney at the Voss Law Firm. Call Bill Voss, a Texas maritime lawyer for a free legal consultation at 888-614-7730, to determine if you may be able to get your medical expenses and other damages covered by your employer after an offshore injury.
