Maritime Accident Injury Lawyer

Did you suffer serious injuries as a boat, vessel or barge employee, or just as a recreational passenger? When you or a loved one suffer injuries as a boat, vessel or barge worker you may be entitled to recover compensation and other damages that are covered by the Jones Act. Congress enacted the Jones Act to protect employees like boat crews and other seamen in the United States when they sustain injuries. The Marina del Rey maritime accident injury lawyers specialize in this area of the law and can protect the rights of the injured victim that was working on a boat, vessel, barge or dock. The compensation that can be recovered in a legal claim with the Jones Act include:

  • Medical Expenses
  • Loss of Wages
  • Rehabilitation
  • Loss of Future Income
  • Mental Distress
  • Emotional Distress
  • Pain and Suffering

It is crucial to have the experience of the Marina del Rey maritime accident injury lawyers when you or a loved one have suffered injuries to discuss your case. Other employees, the insurance company or the employer cannot provide protection of your rights to recover compensation or have the knowledge that the Weinstein Law Offices lawyers have of the Jones Act. Every accident that occurs is different and discussing your case with the Marina del Rey maritime accident injury lawyers allows them to evaluate your case and explain if you have a Jones Act case. Compensation recovered in a Jones Act lawsuit is often much higher than what is recovered by the injured worker in the worker’s compensation benefits.

The Marina del Rey maritime accident injury lawyers represent the boat injury victim that has suffered injuries as a maritime worker under the Jones Act and the pleasure boater that suffered injuries due to another party’s negligence. Weinstein Law Offices lawyers have the maritime experience to evaluate your case and establish the laws that apply to your accident and the injuries you or a loved one has suffered and the compensation you may be entitled to recover.

The Marina del Rey maritime accident injury lawyers have the resources to help recover compensation under the Jones Act and other laws that apply, whether you were a crew member working in housekeeping, or were the captain of the ship.

When you have suffered injuries, while working as a crew member or as an officer on a boat, vessel or ship that was in international waters, on a river or on a lake, it is possible that you are entitled to recover damages under the Jones Act. The Jones Act may also apply to the worker injured on land, under certain circumstances, including the length of time that is spent working aboard a ship, vessel, barge or other craft.  If you or a loved one suffered injuries consult the Marina del Rey maritime injury lawyers to determine if you have the rights to recover compensation and damages under the Jones Act or if other laws apply to your case.
