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.

“After my car was totaled in an accident, the other driver gave a false name, left the scene, and left me alone on the side of the road with a concussion. Afterwards, insurance companies were contacting me with confusing information that I knew was not right, but I had no idea how to deal with them on my own. I was so fortunate to be directed to Maria Diamond. She made a personal visit to see me and learn what happened. Maria agreed to take my case and kept me informed and prepared for every step through the arbitration process and a successful outcome. My family is so grateful to Maria for her expertise, professionalism, and support during a very confusing and hurtful time. I would recommend her to anyone.” Sue Byron
