Common Causes of Maritime Injuries
Conditions aboard boats and ships at sea can be rough and often risky. Maritime accidents may be expected, but workers should not be injured because of ignored safety protocols or other negligence. The ship’s owner, captain, crew and other workers have a shared obligation for safety.
Ship’s crew who are injured in maritime accidents have a right to compensation for their losses. Claims for many maritime accidents are subject to specific and complex federal laws. In many cases, claims are disputed by the ship’s owner, which is often a large corporation. Injured workers who do not have legal assistance may well find they are not compensated as they should be.
