ARE YOU AN OFFSHORE WORKER? SEE WHAT THE JONES ACT

CAN DO FOR YOU!

The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, also known as the Jones Act, provides protections and just compensation for seamen and others who work offshore on U.S. territorial waters. Jones Act cases are very specific and especially complicated, requiring you to have a skilled and experienced attorney to assist you in navigating their complexities.

Do you qualify for protection under the Jones Act?

 

Remember, traditional workers' compensation does not lend itself to offshore workers. Get protected under the Jones Act today! The act applies to individuals who work more than 30% of their hours on-board and more than 3 nautical miles offshore. In addition, the Death on the High Seas Act allows survivors of someone killed while working at sea to pursue compensation for damages.
