MIAMI, FLORIDA, CREWMEN ACCIDENT ATTORNEYS
Recovering Damages for Your Losses on a Cruise Ship
Some of the most dangerous jobs in the world take place onboard commercial ships, cruise ships, barges, yachts, and other seagoing vessels. Maritime law and the Jones Act entitle crew members and offshore workers to receive compensation for back injuries, slip and falls, and other injuries they suffer on the job. Compensation may cover pain and suffering, maintenance and cure, and lost income. However, you may need assistance recovering your benefits.
At Law Offices of Juan Lucas Alvarez, we have extensive experience representing clients in crewmember injury claims. In addition to Jones Act benefits, you may be entitled to additional compensation if a third-party or product manufacturer is also liable. Our attorneys can help you file your claim and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Accidents and Injuries on the Cruise Ship
Seaman and other workers are at risk for many types of injuries on the job, including back injuries, repetitive stress and catastrophic injuries. A few of the most common injuries are:
- Back injuries
- Lifting injuries to arms and shoulders
- Broken bones and amputations
- Slip and fall injuries
Any of these injuries may cause a lifetime of pain, temporary or permanent disability or wrongful death. We can help you, or your family, seek compensation to cover medical bills, long-term care and lost income.
