Injured at sea? We can help you exercise your right to compensation under maritime law.
Working aboard a ship presents some special challenges and risks that you don’t see when employed on dry land. If you have been injured in your work as a seaman, you may be feeling lost and confused as to what your next steps should be.
Don’t Trust Just Any Attorney
You Need a Maritime Law Specialist
If you spend more than 30 percent of your working hours on an assigned vessel, you fall under the purview of the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, aka the Jones Act. This law provides for injured seamen to take ship owners to court for personal injury or wrongful death damages, with the right to a jury trial.
Needless to say, this process is very different from your typical workers’ compensation claim. You definitely want to be sure you are working with a qualified maritime law specialist who understands the specific rules procedures that apply to your case.
