WHAT IS MAINTENANCE & CURE, AND WHO IS ENTITLED TO RECEIVE IT?
Under federal maritime law an injured seaman or fisherman is entitled to significant protections and benefits, regardless of fault for the cause of the injury. Benefits like maintenance, cure and unearned wages cannot be withheld simply because a company says the injured party caused their own injury. Large companies and employers have a lot of experience, knowledge and resources and they will use all of this to their advantage when dealing with injured parties and taking steps to terminate their benefits. When dealing with these companies, it’s important to be able to recognize what your rights and obligations are.
