Damages may include compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, lost wage earning capacity, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, medical expenses, and job retraining. In almost all cases, a seaman who becomes ill or injured aboard a vessel is entitled to maintenance and cure. Your employer must pay your reasonable and necessary medical bills and a daily living allowance until you have reached maximum medical cure. If an employer willfully refuses to pay proper maintenance and cure benefits, you may be entitled to claim punitive damages.
