Jones Act Attorneys

Experienced Jones Act attorneys understand the complexities of maritime law. They know that proving fault and/or negligence can be tough. While many claims are settled before going to trial, some defendant’s refuse to admit negligence and take the case to trial. Jones Act attorneys are practiced at proving a client’s case in front of a jury. They present strong arguments and provide proof where needed.  If you have suffered an injury employed on a vessel at sea, or while working on an offshore rig or platform, the best thing you can do is put your case in the hands of experienced Jones Act attorneys.  Although many attorneys advertise themselves as offshore injury lawyers, the truth is most are not.  You need a lawyer who can handle the many complicated issues of the Jones Act.

Are Jones Act Attorneys Really Needed?

Don’t make the mistake of thinking you can handle your claim on your own.  Jones Act Attorneys will be able to help you prove that the vessel owner was negligent, or could possibly have prevented your injury.  If negligence can be shown, then you will be eligible to be awarded additional compensation for your injury.  That is different from most state workers compensation laws, wherein employer negligence doesn’t matter.
