For employees who have been hurt on the job, filing for worker’s compensation makes sense. However, for employees whose jobs require them to work in or around navigable waters, worker’s comp might not be a viable option. That is due to the specific maritime laws, which dictate specific regulation and protection for these workers. It is important for seamen, crew workers, and anyone who works in a marine environment to understand exactly what these laws protect.
Many believe the maritime industry only applies to those working on offshore vessels. In reality, workers may fall within the protections of maritime law if they work anywhere on or around the waterways. This includes injuries caused by the various types of equipment needed to work on or with vessels. An experienced maritime injury law firm can help employees injured by these tools while on the job.
