If you were injured in an offshore accident at work, you are most likely covered under maritime law and your employer will need to pay for your medical bills. Learn more about this by watching attorney Brian Beckcom in this video. If you are injured in an offshore accident during work, there are federal laws that protect offshore workers. You need to speak with an attorney who specializes in offshore laws and the Jones Act. Under this law, your employer is required to pay for your medical bills until you reach maximum medical improvement. This means your medical bills should be paid until medical treatment will not make you any better. Don’t let your employer condition payment of your medical bills on you seeing a company doctor or giving a recorded statement. You do not have to give a statement and you do not have to see company doctors in order to have your medical bills covered. Because these laws are complex, you need to speak with an experienced maritime accident attorney to get your questions answered.
