Antillean Marine Shipping Corp. Injuries

Being injured on the job due to the negligence of your employer can not only be frustrating but extremely costly. Your injuries may require extensive short- and long-term treatment, while the impact of your injury on your ability to work could lead to long-term losses in income. While it is possible to determine which federal maritime law or Act of Congress applies to the unique facts and circumstances of your injuries that were sustained while working for Antillean Marine Shipping Corp., the best way to reach the outcome you seek and collect the highest compensation is by working with a marine injury lawyer. After you have received emergency medical care for your injuries, it is time to reach out to an attorney. Accepting a settlement before you have had time to fully measure the costs and damages linked to your injuries for the remainder of your life could leave you and your family covering the bills and costs associated with your on-the-job injury. To learn what your options are for getting what you need to cover the costs related to your injuries, reach out to a maritime lawyer at Brais Law Firm and read on to learn more about the rights you have as a seaman working in shipping. 

The Jones Act Protects Seamen and Provides for Compensation

Through the Jones Act, covered seamen who are injured in the course of their employment are entitled to bring a claim to recover certain damages for injuries that they experience on the job. The damages that you could be entitled to through the Jones Act include:

  • Medical costs in the short- and long-term
  • Compensation for lost wages and earnings ability
  • Vocational retraining, depending on the extent of your injuries

When employees are injured as a result of the negligence of their employer, the Jones Act provides a foundation for a cause of action when other laws might not apply. People working on vessels or in onshore or offshore operations related to the maritime industry often have many laws that could apply to their situation, and in some cases, multiple laws will apply at once. To ensure that your claim is filed correctly and accurately, it is best to work with an experienced attorney.
