Barge crash could have resulted in admiralty law claims

Most workers who are in danger of being injured or sickened in the office know that workers' compensation laws in their state will help them recover. But what if you don't know what state you were in when you were injured? What if you weren't in a state at all?

Workers at sea have different workers' compensation laws

Have you known someone who took a full-time job just for the health benefits? Have you been that person? Some people aren't cut out for office work, but they take it so they can afford a trip to the doctor.

When and where is admiralty law helpful?

You don't have to be miles out to sea to have the protection of admiralty law. The tradition of rules covering activities on ships and the water goes back thousands of years, but the modern versions are more than extensions of history. American admiralty law is there specifically to protect American workers with jobs that help keep the country's trade and transport moving.
