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.

“We have been Maria’s clients since the mid-1990’s and developed more than an attorney-client relationship. One of our cases resulted in the need for extensive surgery, and we struggled with our insurance to cover the cost of the initial surgery and recovery. Maria was instrumental in resolving all of these issues. Successful legal representation can only be judged by the outcome and the client’s overall satisfaction. In our case, we have been more than pleased with the results and Maria’s expertise.” Rose and David F-W
