Do I have grounds to file a claim under the Jones Act?
The Jones Act was initially set into place in order to protect seamen. It functions similarly to workers compensation laws which reimburse employees for their injuries while on the job.
In order to file a claim under the Jones Act, the following must be in place:
- The seamen must suffer an injury while on-the-job. The Jones Act doesn't apply to seamen who were injured while off-duty.
- The seamen must have suffered an injury due to the negligence of another, such as the ship owner, ship captain, or other crew members.
Through a thorough and careful evaluation of your case, our McAllen Jones Act attorney can help you determine if you are eligible to pursue compensation under the Jones Act.
