Who Can File a Claim for Maritime Injuries?
If you’ve been injured while working offshore or aboard a vessel, it is possible to file for a workers compensation or negligence claim. An injured individual can file a workers’ compensation claim under state or federal law to receive benefits, including medical treatment.
Workers’ Compensation Claims:
When an individual is injured at work, they may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim under state or federal law. These claims include medical treatment and other benefits that will help with your recovery from the accident.
The injury could also prevent you from doing further harm on the job which makes it worth consulting an attorney about filing one!
Alternatively, the injured party can file a claim against their employer, third-party or boating insurance company. To prevail in this type of suit they have to prove that another person’s negligence led them into injury and caused financial loss as well.
If you’ve been involved in a maritime accident and need help from an experienced attorney, contact us today. We can provide evidence that will prove negligence on behalf of your opponent so they are held accountable for their actions!
A successful claim requires more than just photographs or video clips—it takes documentation such as police reports which contain statements by officers who were at the scene where damage took place.
Steps to Take if You’re Injured on the Job
*If you have been injured on the job, it is crucial that your employer be notified immediately. You should also request a Form LS-1 if medical treatment is needed!
*Visit a physician of your choice and have the injury evaluated.
*Give written notice of the injury or death within 30 days of the accident. Additional time is permitted in cases of certain types of hearing loss and occupational disease claims.
*The worker or beneficiary must file a written claim for compensation within one year after the date of injury, not including any extensions that may be granted. Claims regarding occupational diseases can only go forward if they’re submitted within two years from when it became known.
