Have You Been Injured Aboard A Ferryboat?
Ferryboats are among the most dangerous vessels for professional water workers. Ingress and egress injuries are common, as workers must negotiate the dangers of moving people, automobiles and other cargo in very crowded deck conditions.
In addition, the boats themselves are often among the oldest and most undermaintained vessels on U.S. waterways. Fires, explosions, slip-and-fall injuries and even capsizing are typical accidents that lead to serious injury and death on the water.
Your Legal Rights
If you are a ferryboat worker and were injured in the performance of your duties onboard or on the landing platform, you have the right to seek full and fair compensation by filing a Jones Act claim for damages, including:
- Medical care
- Loss of earnings, maintenance and cure
- Pain and suffering
- All other losses attributable to your accident
At the Law Offices of Lyle C. Cavin, Jr. & Associates, in Oakland, California, we have successfully represented seamen and water workers in Jones Act injury and wrongful death claims for more than four decades.
Our effective, experienced representation has helped us win multiple multimillion-dollar jury verdicts and settlements on behalf of water workers and their families in state and federal courts across the nation.
