What should I know about life jackets?

Even seasoned boaters are encouraged to wear life jackets on the water. Along with ensuring that these life-saving boating accessories are accessible at all times, there are some other important factors you should keep in mind if you want you and your passengers to remain safe. In this case, the U.S. Coast Guard offers the following advice. 

Increasing safety precautions can reduce shipboard risk

New York fishermen work for a variety of commercial operators. Some are highly-mechanized ocean-going vessels, while others use a blend of modern and traditional techniques. Commercial fishing is a physically demanding job. Injuries can occur at any time, whether you are in the galley or on deck. At Tabak Mellusi & Shisha LLP, we often represent clients in maritime accident claims.

The maritime equivalent of workers’ compensation

For most workers in New York, workers’ compensation pays claims when injured or if they experience a work-related illness on the job. However, if you are a seaman working aboard a vessel, the remedies for injuries or illness may not be as well known. At Tabak Mellusi & Shisha LLP, we often help clients pursue and obtain the maintenance and cure benefits they need.
