Only the strong survive maritime work as heavy lifting is a must. Moving heavy equipment, cargo, fish traps or other gear requires specialized techniques for working aboard a moving vessel. The constant movement of the ocean creates a lack of strong support under the legs and already heavy objects take on more weight. The excess weight often proves too much for the natural limits that arms, legs and the back can support. Increasing the problem is the harsh truth that vessel owners rarely train workers with proper maritime lifting techniques.
If you are unable to work after suffering a lifting injury while working in the maritime industry, you are able to recover monetary compensation and medical care. After an injury, your employer must guarantee you receive proper medical care, or he is liable for negligence. Maintenance and cure is a guaranteed right of every injured seaman. Cure gives workers the right to recover medical costs for necessary medical treatment and recovery after an injury. Maintenance gives workers financial compensation to cover daily living expenses. Our attorneys will work on your behalf if your employer wrongly denies you maintenance and cure after suffering a maritime lifting injury.
