General Maritime Law of the United States
If you are a yacht crew member and you satisfy "seaman status"
requirements that are included in admiralty laws, you have special rights
and remedies that are not given to many other workers. In many cases,
you may have protections under the
Jones Act, which is a federal statute. Our firm can help you file a claim for "unseaworthiness"
against the yacht owner if this statute applies in your case.
No matter what your situation, certain elements will need to be proven
to the judge or jury who is deciding your case. At Michael C. Black, P.A.,
we can help you build a solid case to protect your rights. Our goal is
to help you receive the compensation that you deserve.
