Maritime, or Admiralty, law includes many federal laws which apply to help injured workers involved in maritime accidents and accidents suffered in connection with sea and ocean-going vessels. These laws apply whether the vessel in question was at sea or in the harbor. These laws work differently from those which apply to land-based accidents.
The Jones Act, a Federal Law, provides injured seamen with a remedy against their employers for injuries which arise from the either the employer’s negligence or negligent conduct by co-workers while a seaman is working on the job. Claims made under the Federal Jones Act include negligence claims against the employee’s vessel's owner that the vessel itself was unseaworthy.
If a seaman unfortunately dies from a work related accident, a Jones Act based wrongful death suit may be filed and prosecuted based upon the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, another Federal Law, or based simply upon general maritime law.Maritime Cases are Complex and Require Highly Experienced, Qualified Experts
