Maritime Law: Jones Act

Maritime Law: Jones Act Claims
Maritime law accords some of the strongest protections for injured workers of any federal law. The so called Jones Act provides both unemployment benefits and injury compensation to workers who are injured at sea onboard any boat or vessel or in many maritime professions.
Unlike state workers' compensation, the Jones Act often provides very high cash settlements if there was any negligence or wrongdoing involved in the injury (such as poor maintenance). Maritime law works to protect people onboard any inland lake or river as well any ocean or sea worldwide.
