New Jersey Maritime Attorney Wants You to See a Doctor Before Injury

You don't take a maritime job with the intention of getting hurt. If you thought that you would suffer a significant injury and need the services of a New Jersey maritime attorney, then you would likely take a different job. Yet, the reality is that the maritime industry remains one of the most dangerous in the United States. You may be in danger, and the time to start protecting yourself is before you step foot onto a boat.

What You Can Do Before You Begin Work

Before you begin work as a seaman, longshoreman or other maritime professional, it is important to have a complete physical as close to the date you start work as possible. Not only can you be confident that you are physically able to meet the demands of your job, but you may need documentation from that physical if you are later injured. For example, if you suffer an injury and your employer tries to argue that it was a preexisting condition and not a result of a maritime accident, then you may be able to use your pre-employment physical as evidence that your injury was the result of a maritime accident.

How to Contact a New Jersey Maritime Attorney if You've Been Injured

Maritime employers often fight the fair and just recovery of injured maritime workers. You may need to fight for your own just recovery, but you do not have to do it alone. Instead, you can contact an experienced New Jersey maritime lawyer to help you.

To speak with a New Jersey maritime injury lawyer, please call 1-800-362-9329 or 1-800-3-MAY-DAY. We also encourage you to read our FREE publication: Are You a Seaman Injured in a Maritime Accident? Know Your Rights.
