A yacht crew member can have an injury accident in any number of situations, including:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Defective equipment
  • Improperly stored or maintained equipment
  • Heavy lifting
  • Boating collisions
  • Exposure to dangerous situations without safety gear

If you or a loved one was injured while working on a yacht, you might have rights under the Jones Act and the general maritime law of the United States. The Jones Act is a statute that gives seamen the right to seek monetary compensation from their employers for injuries suffered on the job. Through the Jones Act and the general maritime law, it is possible to recover compensation for disability, pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills. It is important to contact a knowledgeable lawyer immediately to discuss your options, and the best course of action for your specific situation.
