Maintenance and Cure Claims Under the Jones Act
At Broussard & Hart, L.L.C., located as we are on the Gulf of Mexico, our lawyers frequently represent injured seamen in Jones Act claims. When a maritime worker suffers a serious injury at sea as a result of his or her employer’s negligence, the Jones Act requires the employer to pay the worker’s living expenses and medical bills (referred to in a settlement contract as “maintenance and cure”) until the maritime worker is recovered.
It is extremely important, if you have suffered an injury covered under the Jones Act, to ask an experienced attorney to review your settlement contract before you sign it. If you would like to speak with a member of our Lake Charles firm, contact our office to arrange a free, confidential consultation. We work hard to see that our clients recover full compensation under the Jones Act for injuries at sea, including adequate maintenance and cure compensation.
