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 were in a horrific car accident near Seattle in 2004, and Kevin was in a coma with a traumatic brain injury for a month. Our brother-in-law in South Carolina recommended Maria. She met us at the hospital and was ready to take on our case. She was reassuring, honest, and straightforward. Her communication skills are great, and she is confident in what she is doing. We felt she gave 120 percent to our case, and we so appreciated that. We had such a good experience working with Maria.” Kristina and Kevin Roberts
