Q. If i got hurt on a cruise ship as a passenger is there anyway i could get back my money i had to pay for the jones act.
A: Hello. Passenger injury claims are handled a little differently than Jones Act cases under maritime law. You're best bet is to consult with an experienced maritime lawyer about how you were injured and whether any legal remedies are available under the circumstances.
Q. Hello, I have a question regarding merchant NAVY. What is the punishment for using insulting words in VHF Radio ? Tnx
A: Hello, To clarify, are you asking about the punishment for a member of the U.S. Navy, the U.S. Merchant Marine, or someone else? Are the insulting words coming from a service member or a private citizen? And are the words profane and/or false, or something else? Thank you.
Q. Do I need a high powered attorney?
A: Tim is right. If you were hurt on a vessel or adjacent to the water, you might consider reaching out directly to a maritime lawyer. Maritime law can be tricky, so it's best to talk to an experienced lawyer one-on-one.
