Achieving Positive Results at Maggio Law Firm, PC

Cases involving seaman injuries are very complicated. The Jones Act and other maritime laws involve are complicated to interpret. The law is favorable to seamen, and it's important to speak with a lawyer who understands how to interpret the law. At our firm, we understand how to evaluate these situations and ask important questions:

  • Was the vessel properly maintained?
  • Was equipment working properly?
  • Did the conditions make the area susceptible to an accident?
  • Were the weather conditions hazardous?

Many clients are worried about their medical expenses and lost wages while they are recovering. It is important to know that if a vessel is unseaworthy, the vessel owner is required to pay maintenance and cure to the injured seamen, meaning they have to pay your medical bills and provide you with assistance during your recovery.

We will use our knowledge of the law to work to make sure you are compensated for your loss and receive the proper medical attention. Our firm also works closely with insurance companies and with physicians who can provide no-cost medical treatment for our clients during their recovery.
