Some of the tactics & truths include: 

  • TACTIC: The company will tell you they need a recorded statement after an accident occurs.
  • TRUTH:  Recording any statement is not a requirement. If an employer pushes for a recording, you can bet they are trying to build a case against you.


  • TACTIC: The company pushes you to receive a diagnosis and treatment from their ‘company doctor’.
    TRUTH: You are only required to see the ‘company doctor’ once. You have the right to see your trusted physician for diagnosis and treatment.


  • TACTIC: Companies will offer ‘cash advances’ to help cover employee expenses while they aren’t able to work.
    TRUTH: Cash advances are actually loans from the company, which they require you to pay back. Injured maritime workers are entitled to maintenance and cure benefits which should cover all expenses. If they do not, you likely aren’t receiving all of the compensation you deserve.
