The Jones Act

Are you a maritime worker who has been injured on the job?

The Jones Act is a federal law that provides legal protection for maritime workers who are injured while working on navigable waters.

Under the Jones Act, seaman, maritime workers, barge workers, vessel workers and offshore workers who have been injured on a ship, barge, offshore drilling platform, or other vessel have the right to seek compensation for injuries caused by the negligence of their employer or coworkers.

These workplaces can cause catastrophic injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, drowning, burn injuries, broken bones, loss of limbs, spinal cord and paralysis injuries, electrocutions and even death.

If you or a loved one are a maritime worker who has been injured on the job, it is important to contact U&C’s Jones Act attorneys as soon as possible. U&C can help you navigate the complex legal process and pursue compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages.
