On this week's episode of The Legal Difference, attorney Wes Gralapp continues the conversation on maritime law, and what you need to know. Wes explains the term "unseaworthy," and filing claim under that definition. He shares how this is different from a worker's compensation claim, and what to do if your employer contests it. He talks about the different types of claims you can file under the Jones Act, and the types of compensation you may receive. He finishes up the segment with why you may need an attorney if you've suffered a maritime injury.
