All too frequently, when a Master Mate or Pilot is injured, the vessel owner and their insurance company try to blame the injured crewman. Under the maritime law, a crewman never assumes the risk of negligent injury or an unseaworthy vessel. Your employer and vessel owner owe you a duty to provide you a seaworthy vessel and a safe place to work. If you are injured through the unseaworthiness of the vessel or negligence, you are entitled to compensatory damages under the Jones Act and the General Maritime Law. Compensatory damages for your injuries may include past and future lost wages, future lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, medical expenses, and more.
