    I am a Maritime lawyer and member of SEALI. if you or were on a vessel in navigable waters at the time if your injury you have rights under the Jones Act for maintenance and Cure, damages fir Negligence and it unseaworthiness and damages for any delay in providing cure benefits or refusal to provide cure ( and fir so long as you were not at maximum medical cure), maintenance payments measured by your wages and after any contract ends your contract rate for sick wages. You need to have an experienced maritime lawyer analyze your facts as to why you suffered a disc injury, as unseaworthiness is a broad remedy including insufficient crew, equipment etc which could have caused or contributed to your injury, and carries a lesser standard of proof of causation.

    The answer will depend upon the language of the ticket you were issued or would have been issued but are likely bound by, regarding the cancellation policy, which differ for each cruise line. most have partial or non refund ability provisions after a certain number of days or weeks from the cruise date, and in may cases are onerous.

  • I am a federal agent and was recently run over by an arrestee and shattered my knee and got concussion.

    Do I have any repercussions to sue this criminal for pain and suffering?

    Glenn’s Answer

    its only a viable case to the extent the arrestee has auto insurance, and then in a sufficient amount to cover your damages. do you have Uninsured or excess Underinsured motorist coverage? does the agency you work for have UM/UIM on any vehicle you were driving, if applicable or had just driven before being struck. that may be another avenue, otherwise your limited to Federal Workers comp.

  • Can they freeze your bank acct if you are under the Jones act law

    medical bill went to collections had a debtors exam on 8-19-14 agreed to 100 a month than on 8-26-14 they froze his acct between that time the atty tried to garnish his wages and found out that she couldn't so she had his acct frozen.... now due t...

    Glenn’s Answer

    As Alan said, more facts are needed, as you are mixing terms and possibly legal concepts. A debtors exam is a bankruptcy device, the initial examination by the local trustee to investigate assets and the debtors circumstances. A garnishment is a collection device used post judgement, but is a legal proceeding typically stayed by the automatic stay provisions of th US Bankruptcy Code. A freeze on the account is a legal proceeding also likely stayed (stopped ) by bankruptcy. This is why more facts are needed. A jones act seaman is entitled to maintenance and cure, cure are the medical bills incurred until the seaman reaches maximum medical cure., which should be protected by bankruptcy and exempt to the extent paid directly to the creditor medical billing company ( even if through a lawyer). Please clarify your facts, and give a more thourough explanation.

  • Injury outside US

    This case is about an injury that accured at a Hotel outside the United states (hotel is owned by US company) on a waterside. I'm looking for of a lawyer who is familiar with that type of issues and is willing to provide a consultaton on the phon...

    Glenn’s Answer

    Mr Oakley's well written answer covers the issues very thoroughly. What interest do you have, if you are not the injured party? Is this for a child or ward? Forum non conveniens challenges, which the liable hotel chain would most likely file, seeking to have the suit dismissed in any US court is a formidable obstacle to a successful suit in any US jurisdiction. The injured parties interests will be balanced against that of the hotel chain and those relative jurisdictional ties and contacts will determine the venue.

  • Do I owe my California attorney his expenses for a lost slip and fall contingency case.

    There was no contract ever presented but an agreement for 1/3 to be paid from the settlement. We/he lost the case and now he wants me to pay over 13K dollars of expenses he incurred. I told him this was a contingency suit and since i won nothing i...

    Glenn’s Answer

    You need to speak to a California personal injury attorney. Each state law and rules governing professional responsibility and contingency fee agreements differ. A written agreement would ordinarily determine whether you would or would not be liable for costs in the event you lose your case. Absent an agreement, written or oral it is unlikely you would be required to pay costs. You may be liable to the other side for their taxable court costs upon losing. Perhaps that is what us being pursued. I can tell you I do not bill my clients for costs in the event of loss or no recovery and many contingency fee type lawyers do the same but the practice differs from place to place. Talk to a local lawyer and your state Bar Association.
