Under the Jones Act and the unseaworthiness doctrine, seamen injured through negligence or unseaworthiness are entitled to compensation for pain and suffering, disability, lost earning capacity, lost wages, medical expenses, and vocational and educational retraining costs. Under the maintenance and cure doctrine, almost all seamen who become injured or ill while in the service of their vessel are entitled to a daily living allowance until their condition reaches maximum medical cure. Seamen have the right to choose their own doctors and to receive all reasonable and necessary medical care at no expense.
