Maritime Worker Injuries

Most employees in the U.S. are covered by their state's workers' compensation if they suffer a job-related injury. But a few industries have their own unique  laws and remedies when it comes to injuries to employees, and the maritime  industry is one of those. For people who work on and around boats and  in  shipping centers, any injury sustained on the job will likely be covered by either the Jones Act or the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.  In this section, we'll explain these federal laws and how they  provide an exclusive remedy for most injured workers in the maritime industry.
