The Jones Act

Seamen and other persons who were injured while working at sea, on offshore oil rigs, or maritime vessels have special rights and protection under the law. The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, also known as the Jones Act, provides protections and compensation to individuals working in U.S. territorial waters. These cases can be complicated since maritime operations often include many companies with overlapping responsibilities for supervision and safety. It is essential to hire an experienced attorney to advise you of the best course of action.

An employee may sue for injuries or illness that arose from employment and were caused by:

  • The employer’s negligence
  • A co-worker’s negligence
  • An unsafe condition
  • Inadequate or unavailable medical care
  • An employer’s failure to rescue or search for a seaman who fell or jumped overboard

Recoverable Damages

If you have been injured, you are now facing an unexpected financial burden at no fault of your own.

You may be eligible to recover compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and future earning capacity
  • Past and future physical pain and suffering
  • Disfigurement
  • Emotional distress

You have three years from the date of the illness or injury, so don’t wait to speak to an attorney.
