Compensation for Injured Commercial Maritime Seamen in Rhode Island

Maritime Injury Attorneys Based in Providence & Middletown

Maritime workers who qualify as seamen and are injured while on a vessel may be able to recover compensation from their employer under the Jones Act. Negligence that led to injury, as well as maritime law defining unseaworthiness, allows injured seaman to pursue compensation to aid in their recovery.

Multiple benefits are due to the injured seamen including maintenance, or wages; cure, meaning medical care; and, when applicable, settlements or court verdicts for future losses, including the loss of income, pain and suffering, scarring, the loss of use, and future medical bills.
