Seamen/Maritime Injuries/Jones Act

Seamen and maritime workers, unlike land-based workers, are not entitled to workers’ compensation benefits under either State or Federal law. The only compensation they are entitled to receive for their injuries is through the Jones Act and the General Maritime Law.

In order for injured seaman to recover under the Jones Act, they must prove that their injury was caused by their employer’s negligence. The attorneys at our firm have extensive experience prosecuting claims under the Jones Act.  If you or someone you know is a seaman or maritime worker who was injured during the course of their employment, please contact us immediately.
