What is the Jones Act?

What is the Jones Act?

May 22, 2015

If you are a maritime worker who was injured as a result of your work duties, then you may be entitled to compensation for your injury under the Jones Act. Please watch the video below to learn more about the Jones Act and how an experienced attorney can guide you through the process of securing the benefits to which you are entitled.

Not every type of maritime worker is covered under the Jones Act, so it’s important to consult a lawyer experienced with these types of cases to find out if you are eligible. There are other means of securing injury benefits, and certain workers fall under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. The important thing is to work toward getting compensation so that you can begin to heal and get the medical care you need. An experienced attorney can determine the best means of pursuing compensation on your behalf.
