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.

“My daughter was injured during birth when a catheter punctured my womb. She suffered from a loss of blood, and several other mistakes were made before she was finally resuscitated. My mother, who is a nurse, suggested Judy Massong. With her as my attorney, I felt I was in the most experienced hands. With Judy's help, we settled twice, once with the hospital and again with the medical device manufacturer. Judy is as strong as a bulldog, and she always made it her goal to keep us informed and help us find the resolution we needed as a family. We have worked hard on my daughter’s recovery, and as challenging as it can be, she is an affectionate, loving, social, bright little girl.” Julie L.
