An employer must provide their crew a reasonably safe place to work. When a seaman qualifies for compensation, the seaman is eligible to sue their employer or the vessel itself for negligence or unseaworthiness respectively, if they feel their safety aboard the vessel is compromised.
If you or a loved one have been denied your right to compensation by an employer it is advisable to contact an attorney with experience in maritime law, who can fight for your right to proper compensation.
