Maritime Head Injuries

We Help Maritime Workers Recover Financial Compensation for Serious Head Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and other types of head injuries can have life-altering consequences. They can cause cognitive impairments, emotional instability, and chronic pain, and, in some cases, they can even shorten workers’ life expectancies. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury while working offshore or in the maritime industry, you need to hire an experienced maritime head injury lawyer who can help you collect the financial compensation you deserve.

From medical care to loss of income, head injuries can be costly. They can also leave injured workers facing a reduced quality of life. Serious head injuries can impact workers’ ability to spend meaningful time with their spouses and children, and they can also have other day-to-day effects. All of these are losses that injured workers and their families can potentially recover under maritime law.

Seeking Financial Compensation for a Head Injury Under Maritime Law

Seeking financial compensation for a maritime head injury is different from seeking financial compensation under different situations. State workers’ compensation laws do not apply, nor do the laws that apply to car accidents and other accidents on land. Instead, these claims are governed by maritime laws—and most often the Jones Act.

The Jones Act entitles “seamen” to maintenance and cure benefits when they get injured on the job, and it allows seamen and their families to recover additional compensation in cases involving company negligence. If you need to seek financial compensation for a maritime head injury, it is important that you speak with a lawyer who has experience handling Jones Act claims as soon as possible.

It Is Important that You Speak with a Lawyer about Your Claim

Many injured maritime workers try to file for maintenance and cure on their own. Often, companies will tell their employees that they don’t need a lawyer, and they will use various other tactics to try to prevent their employees from collecting the benefits they deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured, you have the right to hire a lawyer, and you should hire a lawyer to make sure you receive just compensation.

When you choose us, we will get to work immediately on your maritime head injury case. We will investigate the cause of the accident, and we will help you avoid costly mistakes. For example, we will help make sure you see the right doctor, and we will help make sure you do not accept a settlement before you know how much you are entitled to recover.

From offshore rigs and barges to commercial fishing vessels and charters, we handle all types of maritime head injury cases. No matter what, where, or why it happened, we can help you protect your legal rights.
