Protecting Crew Member Rights in India

Maritime cases can involve cruise ships, vessel operators or owners, marine commerce, passengers, and crewmembers. From cargo ships to cruise ships to passenger ferries, reports of accidents involving Indian crewmembers are far too frequent.

Sadly, crewmembers don’t always receive the medical care or compensation they deserve for shipboard-related injuries. All crewmembers, regardless of location or country of origin, are entitled to seek legal help from a maritime accident lawyer as soon as an incident occurs. Depending on the type of incident at hand and who was involved, numerous maritime laws and regulations will may apply. The maritime attorneys of Lipcon, Margulies & Winkleman, P.A. have in-depth knowledge of claims involving accidents or injuries at sea.  After a maritime accident has occurred, crewmembers may feel intimidated to take legal action – especially if the incident transpired aboard a cargo or cruise ship.
