Do I Still Need a New York Maritime Lawyer if My Employer Tells Me That He Will Pay My Maintenance

Q
Do I Still Need a New York Maritime Lawyer if My Employer Tells Me that He Will Pay My Maintenance and Cure?
A
Yes. As New York and New Jersey Jones Act lawyers, we often represent clients whose employers have promised to pay them maintenance and cure. Some of those employers are well intentioned, yet ignorant as to what an injured maritime employee is entitled to pursuant to the law. Other employers are purposely trying to get an injured worker to agree to an unfairly low settlement.

Once you agree to a settlement with your employer, that settlement is likely binding and you may not be entitled to further compensation. Thus, we encourage you to contact a New Jersey and New York maritime lawyer before you accept your employer’s offer of maintenance and cure.
