What is Jones Act And How It Is Useful For Injured Seaman

The Jones Act is a federal law that offers seamen injury settlement rights and permits to file the case against employer for personal injury damages. Unlike, most land-based employees, seamen don’t seem to be entitled to workers’ compensation edges underneath either state or federal law. Thus, seamen cannot file workers’ compensation claims against their employers, The sole compensation that they’re entitled to receive for his or her injuries is through the Jones Act and also the general maritime law.

In general, a seaman could be a person — from crew member to captain – who performs noteworthy amount of work on ship or boat. Even, part time seamen are eligible for compensation for injury under Jones Act.
The Jones act allows seamen to sue his employer for such negligence. To recover all damages, we at Ledger Law can help you prove that due to negligence of owner or authority crew members you are eligible for hefty compensation.
