Injured in a Maritime Accident? The Willis Law Firm Can Help

With hundreds of miles of Atlantic coastline stretching north to the Bay of Fundy, Maine has numerous ports that serve container ships, cargo ships, barges, fishing boats and other commercial vessels from the United States, Canada and around the world. Maine’s busiest port is the Port of Portland, which is managed by the Maine Port Authority and processes more than 12 million short tons of cargo annually.

Seek Just Compensation for Your Maritime Injury

Longshoremen, harbor workers, seamen, and other maritime workers in Maine face many risks on a daily basis. While Maine’s cold winters and icy waters present unique challenges, maritime workers here must be vigilant about watching out for health and safety risks year-round.

Unfortunately, in many cases there is simply nothing that maritime workers can do to avoid being injured. If you have been injured on the job, the Willis Law Firm can help you seek just compensation for your losses. The Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (the “Longshore Act”) and other federal laws protect maritime workers in Maine, and we can use these laws to make sure you receive the compensation you deserve. Contact us to discuss your river, barge or other maritime accident today.

Let the Willis Law Firm Fight for the Compensation You Deserve

Although the Jones Act and Longshore Act state that injured maritime workers are entitled to no-fault compensation (meaning that their employers have to pay even when they aren’t at fault), many maritime workers struggle to collect the benefits they are rightfully owed. In addition, these no-fault benefits are limited, and maritime workers must often file lawsuits against their employers and other companies in order to receive full compensation for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other losses.

As a result, it is generally advisable not to try to claim benefits on your own. To protect your rights, you need an experienced maritime injury attorney who knows the law, knows how to take on the big companies and knows how to make sure that you don’t leave money on the table.
