Help For Injured Victims With Maritime Personal Injury Claims
Injuries occurring on a boat or at sea are covered by a different code of law than those which take place on land. If you have been hurt at sea, whether as a passenger or as an employee, it is important that you have representation that understands maritime and admiralty law. This includes a detailed understanding of Jones Act.
At Bohonnon Law Firm, LLC., we are experienced in handling cases of personal injury at sea. Our attorneys have represented boat passengers, crew members and cruise ship passengers, helping our clients recover the compensation they need to cover medical expenses, as well as pain and suffering.
Recovering Compensation For Those Injured At Sea
At Bohonnon Law Firm, LLC., our lawyers represent individuals in:
- Personal injury matters involving passengers and crew members
- Deaths occurring at sea on cruise ships or pleasure boats
- Jones Act cases and cases involving injured crew members and fishermen
Unlike onshore work-related accidents, offshore accidents that injure seamen and crewmen do not allow for workers’ compensation. Instead, the injured offshore worker is able to pursue damages from his or her employer. This includes any kind of seamen, oil rig worker, cruise ship worker, fisherman, barge operator or any worker doing his or her job on open water.
Our attorneys are experienced in handling these cases and are committed to recovering what you need to pay the medical bills and make ends meet while you are out of work. We investigate how the injury occurred and steps that have been taken to compensate you for the injury.
