Jones-Act-Cases

If you were hurt aboard a rig, barge, tugboat, tanker ship or any other vessel, you might have rights as a seaman under the Jones Act. The Jones Act is a federal maritime law that grants specific rights to injured seamen, crewmen and some other maritime workers, including the following:

The Jones Act covers crewmen who are injured or die through the negligence of their employers aboard vessels in navigable waters at sea or rivers, lakes, bays, bayous, sounds, or any other waterway. Unfortunately, not all accidents aboard floating vessels are covered by the Jones Act. To find out if you have a case, please contact the knowledgeable Galveston Jones Act law firm of Stevenson & Murray. Your consultation and case evaluation will be free and completely confidential.

Jones Act and Longshoremen Claims

Our Galveston Jones Act law firm also handles claims against third parties other than the employer for those who may be covered under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). While many employees injured aboard a vessel—the captain, first mate, deckhands, engineers, wipers, and even cooks and housekeepers—may have a claim under the Jones Act, others may need experienced legal help to find other sources of compensation and benefits, such as LHWCA claims for qualified maritime workers or state workers’ compensation benefits.

Damages Recoverable Under the Jones Act Include:
