Offshore workers know there’s a lot of risk involved in their jobs—that’s just part of the territory. Even though they accept the dangers of the work, it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t get paid when they’ve been injured.
If you were hurt on the job, whether out on the water or at the dock, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries. Fill out a free contact request form today and tell us about your accident. Our Miami maritime injury lawyers can help. With 26 attorneys and 120 legal professionals, we have the experience and resources to get you the money you deserve.
Although workers in the nautical industry can receive benefits when they’ve been injured on the job, their rights aren’t protected by general workers’ compensation laws. Instead, the Jones Act and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) were established to help maritime workers collect compensation and lost wages for their injuries.
If you need help with a maritime injury claim, we can help. With offices in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Port St. Lucie, Orlando and Tampa, we have considerable resources and what it takes to get the job done.

In addition to injured workers receiving benefits, employees suffering from medical diseases caused or worsened by their jobs may also be eligible for compensation. The Miami workers’ compensation lawyers at Steinger, Iscoe & Greene are familiar with these conditions and can help determine if you’re entitled to money.
The Department of Labor reports that the LHWCA provides more than $747 million in monetary, medical, and vocational rehabilitation benefits in more than 27,000 cases annually for maritime workers and various other special classes of private industry employees disabled or killed by employment injuries or occupational diseases.
