You are someone other crew members may ignore or avoid, leaving you isolated and confused. Your injury may be worse than you understand. Your right to recovery for damages may be greater than you know. Without legal counsel, you probably will not have the information needed to evaluate your legal rights. While you are wondering what you need to do, the vessel owners are moving quickly to minimize your right to compensation for your injury.
