Why You Should Talk to a Jones Act Lawyer

You need to call a Lawyer as soon as possible after an injury. Do not wait to contact an offshore injury lawyer or you will regret it. Your employer may require you to see a company chosen doctor but, you should switch to another doctor who is not connected to your employer, for obvious reasons. First, company connected doctors will minimize your medical treatment and the extent of your injury.

That’s why employers insist that you go to their doctors. A Jones Act Lawyer can help you choose a doctor who will not be connected to or obligated to your employer. The Attorneys at Abbott & Associates will look after your interests just like your employer looks after their interest. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that your employer or their insurance company is also looking out for your interest. There is an obvious conflict of interest between your interests and the employer’s interest. Call an at 1-800-JONES-ACT today to find out your rights and to get common sense information about offshore injury cases.
