Pursuing a Claim Against U.S. Maritime Companies

If you or a loved one has been employed by a maritime company and has sustained an injury while working:

  • You may be eligible for a settlement via the Jones Act (or the Merchant Marine Act of 1920) a piece of legislation that compensates injured maritime employees when they are injured as a result of another's negligence.
  • You should set up a free, initial consultation with an experienced Jones Act attorney to find out if you have a viable claim.

Those who decide to stand up for their legal rights and pursue a settlement can recover compensation for their medical bills, lost wages and pain and suffering.
