Maritime Injury Attorneys in Rhode Island

Helping Workers Recover Future Losses from Our Offices in Providence & Middletown

Were you or a loved one injured while working on a vessel? Injured seamen have rights to compensation and benefits to help you now and into the future. Recovering the full amount you are entitled to, however, requires the assistance of a lawyer skilled in maritime law.

Contact Karns & Kerrison online or call our legal team at (888) 281-3100 to schedule a free initial case consultation.

Jones Act & Maritime Law

In lawsuits for Jones Act negligence or unseaworthiness regarding maritime law, the injured seamen can sue for future losses that include an inability to return to the job they held on the vessel before they were injured, causing them to suffer a permanent loss of income and/or wages.

In addition, recovery can include the following:

  • Future medical bills
  • Scarring
  • Loss of use
  • Pain and suffering

These damages can be paid by way of a settlement or by way of a court verdict.
