Pittsburgh Maritime Accident Attorneys

Barge workers, seaman, and other maritime workers injured on the job may be entitled to claim compensation under a number of Federal laws. These include the Jones Act and the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act. Families of maritime workers who suffer death on the job can seek compensation under the Death on the High Seas Act.

Unlike the workers' compensation system, the Jones Act allows injured maritime workers to claim compensation for pain, suffering, and emotional loss, in addition to medical treatment, rehabilitation, and lost income. Maritime accident law is complex and obtaining compensation is often difficult.
