Jones Act Lawyer

Representing Injured Seamen Nationwide and Worldwide

The Jones Act is a federal law passed in the 1920's to help seamen recover damages when injured.  What the Jones Act actually does is provide injured seamen with a right to sue their employer when their employer’s negligence causes the injury.  But it has come to mean much more.  Today when we refer to a seaman’s Jones Act rights, it is a short hand way of referring to all of a seamen’s rights when injured.

An injured seaman has three fundamental rights when injured:

  1. The right to receive Maintenance and Cure
  2. The right to sue his/her employer for negligence
  3. The right to sue the ship owner for unseaworthiness – a dangerous or defective condition of the ship that causes injury

If you, your spouse or a loved one has been injured, become ill, or has suffered wrongful death which is in any way related to work on a vessel – you may be eligible for compensation under the Jones Act.
