worked tirelessly to get me worker's comp in DC ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Ben took my case when I was desperate and lost. He worked tirelessly to get me worker's comp in DC for a chemical long term injury I suffered at work. He succeeded where other lawyers just gave up. He got the DC Worker's Comp to agree I was permanently partially disabled in 2004. Without his ongoing help, I would be a bag lady or dead. He and his team have been amazing over all these years.

Frequently Asked Questions

Maritime law, often called admiralty law, is a federal law. It governs domestic and international activities (such as shipping) and vessels that operate on- and offshore. Attorneys can use these “laws of the sea” to enforce fair treatment and just payment of benefits to seamen and civilians injured while engaging in maritime-related activities.

Also known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, the Jones Act is a federal statute that regulates maritime commerce in United States waters and ports. Seamen covered by the Jones Act who are working in the service of vessels may be able to recover compensation related to their medical care and cost of living expenses.
Determining if you are a seaman covered under the Jones Act can be difficult without the help of an experienced maritime attorney. CHASENBOSCOLO’s legal team is familiar with the stipulations and laws in the Jones Act, and we can help protect your rights.

No attorney can tell you exactly what your case is worth without first hearing the details of your situation. However, there are many factors that may weigh in on that value. Your medical costs, lost wages, and long-term damages are considered when your case’s value is determined.

If you file a lawsuit, your attorney will help you figure out what amount of compensation is fair as a settlement. If the defendant does not offer a fair settlement, we will be ready to take your case to trial where a jury will ultimately determine what your case was worth.
