Rights Of Injured Crew Members
If you work on a charter boat, you may be covered by the Jones Act or the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. In the event of an on board injury, the Jones Act can entitle you to significantly more compensation than you would receive from the Louisiana workers’ compensation system.
Our lawyers will work diligently to help you obtain all of the maintenance and cure benefits you are entitled to receive. If the owner of the boat failed to provide equipment necessary for the operation of the vessel, we may be able to obtain additional compensation through an unseaworthiness claim.
Rights Of Injured Passengers
When representing you, Murphy Law Firm, LLC will undertake a comprehensive legal effort designed to obtain full compensation for you. Our lawyers will establish the liability of the owner and operator, calculate the full amount of your economic and noneconomic losses, and seek results for you in settlement negotiations or at trial.
