Maintenance and Cure: What You Need to Know if You've Been Hurt at Sea

If you've been hurt in a maritime accident, lawyers in New York and New Jersey may be able to help you recover damages. You can contact a maritime lawyer anytime after your injury; however, the sooner you call, the sooner your admiralty attorney can get to work protecting your rights.

Many maritime workers are covered by the Jones Act. The Jones Act, which applies to seamen, allows seamen to recover damages for maintenance and cure until they reach the maximum medical cure. Maintenance is meant to provide a daily allowance to injured workers for their housing and food costs while they are on shore. Cure is meant to provide compensation for medical treatment up until the point you stop improving or making medical progress, or when you have reached the maximum medical cure.

The New York and New Jersey admiralty lawyers of Hofmann & Schweitzer are experienced in helping seamen recover damages for their injuries. If you've been hurt, then you may be entitled to damages that can make a big difference in your physical health and financial recovery.
