Compensation For Injured Commercial Maritime Seamen

Injured maritime workers who qualify as "seamen" and are injured on a "vessel" can recover compensation from their employer under the "Jones Act" for negligence or under maritime law for "unseaworthiness."

Multiple benefits are due to the injured seamen including "maintenance" (wages), "cure" (medical care) and when applicable, settlements or court verdicts for future losses, including loss of income, pain and suffering, scarring, loss of use, and future medical bills.
