Protected Injured Seaman Throughout the Nation
Following a serious maritime accident, injured seamen may face a host of both tangible and tangible costs. These do not only have an immediate impact on the individual and their family, but can affect them for many years to come. In almost all cases, the immediate effects are obvious in the inability to work, the steep medical bills, and the initial pain and suffering associated with the injury or illness. Even the future costs of rehabilitation are often a well-known cost.
However, it is not always easy to see what the future costs of an injury will be. In some cases, the individual may require life-long medical attention or may eventually pass away from the side effects of the accident. For this reason, it is crucial that the injured and their family recover just damages for the injury under the Jones Act.
Consider these costs that could result from a maritime injury or death of a seaman:
- Long-term rehabilitation;
- In-home care;
- Lost wages and earning capacity;
- Future physical / emotional health complications;
- Emotional and financial counseling; and
- Vocational rehabilitation
