What should be the amount of compensation due to injury

Very​frequently I return to the same question: the amount of the compensation due to the injury aboard the vessel. And I always hesitate to tell the exact sum for the following reasons.

When communicating with the seafarers I always suggest the possible ways of solving the problem and variants of compensation sums, but it’s always for seafarers to decide.

All the marine lawyers in the majority of cases primary take into account the contract of employment and the sums stipulated in it, and I’m not the exception.   But there is always opportunity to get the increased sum of compensation, that is: if there is a choice of getting the increased sum of compensation, it’s very hard to predict the total amount of money as a result.
