Jones Act Claims
Seamen who are injured in commercial maritime accidents caused by others’ negligence or carelessness have a right to compensation for their losses. If such an injury occurs on an offshore vessel, compensation may be available to cover the injured worker’s medical costs, lost wages and pain and suffering through a federal law known as the Jones Act.
The Jones Act is also a protection in cases of injuries suffered because an offshore vessel is not seaworthy.
