Miami Yacht Crew Accident Lawyer
Yachts are a big business throughout Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and the surrounding Florida communities. These yachts often require a several member crew in order to operate and maintain the watercraft. Since these yacht crew members are aboard a sea-bound vessel, the same laws that protect commercial ship crew members also applies to them in situations where a yacht accident has caused injuries. To understand your rights as a yacht crew member, turn to the experienced Miami yacht crew accident lawyers at Law Offices of Michael F. Guilford, P.A.
Michael Guilford has been providing quality admiralty and maritime law representation to crew members that have sustained injuries in a yacht accident or other boating mishap. My knowledge and experience in this area allows me to explain your rights and provide a realistic view of all possible outcomes of your case.
Your Rights under The Jones Act and the General Maritime Law of the United States
As a yacht crew member, your injuries are not eligible for a workers’ compensation claim, but they do fall within the purview of The Jones Act and the General Maritime Law of the United States. You are entitled to the same type of maintenance and cure as a crew member on a commercial vessel. This may seem complicated and confusing, however, I am exceptionally skilled at helping individuals understand The Jones Act, as well as, the General Maritime Law of the United States, and how it applies to your situation.
