Admiralty or Maritime Law is one
of the world's oldest bodies of law...
Karlos Finley is a veteran of the United States Coast Guard and has worked at several shipyards. He understands loading and offloading ships; both moored and underway. Federal admiralty law has a great impact upon private American law in maritime worker injury claims. If a worker qualifies as a seaman, he/she may seek traditional tort claims damages against his/her negligent employer through the Jones Act. Additionally, a seaman may pursue a claim for maintenance and cure, which provides medical treatment, together with living expenses while undergoing treatment. Employees who do not qualify as a seaman may be a maritime worker and entitled to benefits provided by the Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWC), a traditional maritime workers’ compensation benefit.
