What Is a Maintenance and Cure Claim?

Maintenance and cure claim is a type of claim that is available to crew members who are injured on a ship. It's similar to land based workers compensation. It gives you, as a crew member, the right to a certain amount of your living expenses and the medical expenses the you incur as a result of your injury.
