Estado del trabajador marítimo

Depending upon the injured person’s status, he may have several avenues of recourse including a claim under the Ley de Longshore y Harbormen's, el Ley de Jones or state common law personal injury laws. A maritime injury lawyer can determine the proper status of an injured worker so that the right claim may be filed. The Merchant Seaman Protection and Relief Act of 1920 a/k/a the “Jones Act” was a law designed to create a similar protection as worker’s compensation for people injured while working as a longshoreman, seaman or other marine workers. The act allows injured workers to file claims for benefits to cover damages that they suffer while working in the admiralty and maritime field. In these cases, often the pivotal issue is whether the vessel itself was seaworthy or whether the captain’s negligence was the cause of the injury.
