Maersk Lines Limited Cargo Line

The company Maersk Lines Limited began large-scale operations when it acquired its first government contract to convert and operate a handful of military prepositioning ships in 1983. Since that time, Maersk Lines Limited has been providing U.S. flag transportation in addition to ship management for both commercial and government clients. The company is based out of Virginia and has the largest U.S. flag fleet currently in commercial services. Approximately 3,500 U.S. mariners are employed by Maersk Lines Limited, and given the inherent dangers of the job, some of them are inescapably injured. 

When you are injured while working as a seaman for a private company, it can be confusing to determine which laws and case precedents apply to your claim or case. While Maersk Lines Limited will carry insurance that will often cover the costs and damages linked to employee injuries, the insurance company does not work for you and will try and reduce or deny your claim, if possible. 

To ensure that your claim is processed under the proper laws and that you are able to recover the full damages to which you are entitled, we encourage you to work with a maritime lawyer at Brais Law Firm. After you have received emergency medical care, it is time to reach out to an attorney to start building the best possible case. 

Maersk Lines Unlimited Has a Positive Reputation but Employees are Still Injured 

While companies may establish proactive measures to keep employees safe and free of the risk of injury or illness on the job, injuries still happen. While you might think that shipping lines are not required to protect their employees in the same way as other companies like cruise ships, that is not the case. If you experience a long-term, life-altering injury while working for Maersk Lines Unlimited, the circumstances will determine the compensation to which you may be entitled. 

The experienced maritime injury lawyers at Brais Law Firm have helped injured maritime workers recover millions in compensation for the extensive costs that are often associated with injuries in the maritime industries. Our founding partner has been working in maritime law for many years, and our team of lawyers has decades of combined experience helping injured workers like you recover the compensation you deserve. 

Seek Guidance from a Maritime Lawyer and Get the Help You Need With Your Claim 

If you or a loved one has been injured while working for Maersk Lines Limited, an attorney can help to streamline the process and support the best possible outcome in your case. We will handle all evidence collection, drafting and communications, and negotiations with the insurance company. We begin with an initial consultation to determine if you have a viable case, and if we determine that you do, we’ll discuss our fees in greater detail. We generally take cases on a contingency fee basis, which generally means you pay nothing unless we win on your case.
