Maritime law is regulated by the federal government. Virginia maritime injury claims can be complicated when employees are injured and in need of workers’ compensation.
Thankfully, maritime workers can avail themselves of the Merchant Marine Act (Jones Act) and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) which were created to compensate those who work on boats, or work on the navigable waters of Virginia. The Virginia maritime injury lawyers from The Barrera Law Firm, PLLC, have the experience to ensure you get the compensation they deserve.
