Maritime employees are too often required to work in a condition that has become unsafe due to equipment that is dangerous as a result of poor maintenance or faulty nature. If you have suffered an injury aboard a vessel or while working at a port, and you believe your injury was caused by dangerous equipment on the job site, determining your status as an employee (Jones Act Seaman, commercial fisherman, longshoreman or harbor worker) will be critical to your claim. Our Florida maritime attorneys at Munch and Munch, P.A. have over 30 years of experience working with maritime injury claims. Hiring a lawyer with the experience to know what category of employee you fall into will help protect your legal rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
