Maritime Injuries

Maritime vessels are one of the most dangerous places to work. For this reason, special remedies are available under the maritime law to compensate those hurt at sea and their families. If a worker becomes injured or sick while in the service of a vessel, the employer must pay the worker a basic living allowance and medical bills until he or she is healed. Damages for personal injury or death may be recoverable under the Jones Act or the Death on the High Seas Act. At Diamond~Massong, we are experienced in helping maritime workers – whether they are fishermen, deckhands, processors, engineers, ferry workers, or other crewmembers – get the compensation they are entitled to in this special area of law.

“I had a medical negligence case where my bile duct was completely cut during gall bladder surgery. I have had several surgeries for corrections since then. Judy Massong was recommended to me by a friend, and it felt right to have an attorney with a medical background. I adore Judy; she is compassionate and caring and communicates well. I feel comfortable that she is a female, and I am so pleased with how she handled my case. She truly believes in what she’s doing, and she’s a great advocate for the victim.” Melody P.
