Maritime Accidents and Injuries

Chances are you have several troubling concerns that keep you up at night. Questions like:

  • How will I pay for medical bills following a maritime injury?
  • What if I can no longer provide for my family?
  • Why isn't my maritime employer concerned about my accident and injuries?
  • What if a co-worker experiences a similar maritime injury?
  • Is the low-ball offer the insurance adjuster presented really all my injuries are worth?
  • Does my maritime injury claim fall under the Jones Act?

Our Maritime Lawyers Can Help Protect All Maritime Workers

Maritime occupations can encompass a wide range of jobs, both in the water and on land. Our maritime lawyers represent clients in claims brought under the Jones Act and Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. The Jones Act covers those who live and work on water vessels which can include ships, oil rigs and other vessels that are actually out at sea. Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act claims involve those who work in the maritime industry but are not considered seamen working on a vessel at sea. In most cases, this can include those working on docks, repairing ships or doing related on-shore work with boats.

The maritime injury lawyers at Hofmann & Schweitzer are dedicated to protecting the rights of all maritime workers, including:

  • Seamen
  • Fishermen
  • Dock workers
  • Harbor workers
  • Ship builders
  • Longshoremen

Even if you don’t see your specific title listed here, you may still be eligible to file a legal claim as a maritime worker. Our experienced maritime attorneys can help you understand your rights and pursue the maximum amount of compensation for your injuries.
