K-Sea‘s Pacific Division is mainly involved in transporting petroleum products up and down the West Coast and throughout Alaska. K-Sea has a large fleet of tugs and tank barges. Unfortunately, crewmen working for even the best tug and barge companies sometimes suffer serious injuries. When those accidents happen because of negligence or unseaworthiness, injured crewmen are entitled to full and complete compensation under Federal Maritime Law.
Injured crewmen, in almost all cases, are entitled to maintenance and cure. They have the right to choose their own medical care providers and to receive medical treatment until they have reached maximum medical improvement.
