Lynden Marine Lines Injuries
Lynden Marine Lines - Have You Been Injured Working on a Lynden Marine Lines Vessel?
Maritime work is difficult and dangerous. Sometimes even the most skilled workers crewing on the best of vessels are hurt through no fault of their own. If that has happened to you, don’t guess about your rights to compensation. Contact an experienced maritime lawyer to have your injury claim evaluated and to learn about your rights to compensation.
Crewmen injured through negligence or unseaworthiness aboard tugs and barges are entitled to compensation. Injured seamen, in almost all cases, are entitled to maintenance and cure benefits, and in cases involving negligence and unseaworthiness, injured seamen have the rights to compensation for past and future pain and suffering, past and future lost wages, lost earning capacity, medical expenses, and vocational retraining. They have the right to choose their own doctors and continue treatment until they have reached maximum medical improvement.
In some cases involving negligence, harbor workers have claims against a vessel owner in addition to their claims under the Longshore Harbor Workers Act. If you have questions about your rights to compensation, an experienced maritime lawyer should be consulted. Never sign a release without being fully advised of your rights to benefits under maritime law.
