What Damages are allowed for Injuries to Maritime Employees?
Many maritime employees are entitled to damages for their maintenance and cure when they are hurt during the course of their employment. Since maritime employees typically live aboard their vessels while they are working, the law allows them to recover damages for food and lodging while they are unable to work. This is referred to as “maintenance” damages. They are also entitled to damages for the medical and rehabilitative care that they receive up to their “maximum medical cure” or until they recover from their injuries to the greatest extent possible.
Lead Counsel independently verifies attorneys by conferring with state bar associations and conducting annual reviews to confirm that an attorney practices in their advertised practice areas and possesses a valid bar license for the appropriate jurisdictions.
