Foss Maritime Injury Claims

Foss Maritime operates one of the largest fleets of tug and barges in North America. Their fleet of vessels includes ocean going tugs, harbor tugs, and specialized barges providing towing, transportation and ship assist services around the world. Working as a crewman* aboard a tug or barge can lead to serious injuries when proper safety precautions are not taken for the crewman's safety. Almost all injury accidents at sea are preventable if proper equipment and safety procedures are followed.

You Are Entitled To Compensation

Crewmen injured while working aboard Foss vessels are covered by Federal Maritime law. In addition to payment of maintenance and cure benefits under the General Maritime law, the Jones Act provides benefits to seamen who are injured through the negligence of their employer.

Compensation under the Jones Act may include compensation for pain and suffering, disability, disfigurement, lost past and future wages, loss of retirement benefits, retraining costs, and future medical expenses. Unfortunately, because of the high physical demands of working at sea, many injuries leave the crewmen unfit for continued duty at sea.
