Maritime - Seaman Injury (Jones Act)
Working as a seaman in the maritime industry can be extremely dangerous. Seaman are not protected by state workers’ compensation laws. The Jones Act is a law that provides specific protection for seamen who suffer personal injury or illness due to employer negligence or unseaworthiness of vessels.
The Jones Act was enacted to offer relief to injured workers in the maritime industry and to help ensure they receive appropriate compensation for their injuries. Our attorneys have successfully battled maritime employers and insurers to force full compensation.
