When a maritime worker suffers a personal injury while on the job, a personal injury claim is the best course of action for just compensation. However, victims may be blocked from achieving that claim due to Limitation of Liability. This is when the owner of the vessel can limit the amount of damages needing to be paid. This kind of lawsuit is detrimental for victims, so it’s important maritime lawyers are consulted to deal with this kind of suit.
