Do You Have a Jones Act Worker Claim?
Injuries while working offshore occur in many ways. Our attorneys represent injured workers and their families in a broad range of maritime and Jones Act worker claims involving:
- Wrongful death
- Catastrophic injuries such as amputations, burns, broken bones and fractures, head injuries, back injuries and spinal cord injuries
- Oil rig explosions
- Other offshore injuries
The Jones Act provides injured maritime workers and seamen with certain medical and financial benefits if those injuries occurred while working on a ship in navigable waters. Maritime workers may also be covered for injuries that occur on land that are work-related.
