OFFSHORE ACCIDENTS & JONES ACT CLAIMS
The people of the United States’ Gulf Coast are no stranger to offshore jobs; shipping companies and oil companies provide many jobs for the citizens of the gulf coast. Accidents happen at sea just like accidents happen on the mainland.
The Jones Act is a Federal body of laws that allow an injured employee, who is considered a “seaman”, to recover damages from his or her negligent employer. A seaman is anyone who spends a significant amount of on-the-clock working time aboard a seafaring vessel in navigation and whose work contributes to the function of the vessel.
