People working on commercial vessels put their lives at risk every time they go to work.
If you are injured at sea or on navigable waters, the Jones Act provides injured seamen a remedy against their employers for injuries arising from negligent acts during the course of employment on a vessel. Failing to provide a safe place to work can give rise to a Jones Act claim.
Higdon Lawyers may be able to help injured seamen receive money to compensate for their injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, both physical and psychological.
The statute of limitations in a Jones Act is normally three years from the date of injury. If you have been injured at sea, do not wait until it is too late to file a claim.
