Everett Washington Maritime Accidents

Maritime accidents can have very serious consequences on a person’s health and finances. Maritime workers are typically covered under the Jones Act which helps injured seamen recover compensation for their injuries.

Often a plaintiff files a claim because their injuries are a result of their employer’s or coworker’s negligence. The employer has duty of care to the seaman, including setting safety procedures and regulations in place and ensuring that competent and workers are hired.

Common damages an injured maritime employee may receive can include compensation for medical bills, loss of wages, past and future economic loss, rehabilitation, and pain and suffering.
