Jones Act

If you have been injured offshore while working on a vessel, including a semi-submersible, jack-up rig, crew boat, tug boat, supply vessels, airboat, etc then you may be considered a Jones Act seaman. As a Jones Act seaman the law allows you to recover compensation from your employer for damages suffered by you as a result of your employer’s negligence. You need an attorney experienced in Maritime law to properly evaluate your claim. Choosing the wrong lawyer can result in you and your family losing compensation that you will need to address the losses the injury will cause to you and your family.

Unseaworthiness Claims

An unseaworthy vessel is one that has a condition on board that vessel that makes the vessel unreasonably dangerous for its intended mission. If that unreasonably dangerous condition causes you to be injured, then you may have a claim against the vessel owner for unseaworthiness. An unseaworthy condition can be a piece of defective equipment or an untrained crew. These types of cases typically require the assistance of experts and are often expensive to investigate and litigate. In order to prevail you will need an experienced maritime lawyer with the resources to hire the experts necessary for you to win at trial.
