OFFSHORE ACCIDENTS & JONES ACT CLAIMS
There are laws to protect you if you are injured on the job, whether on the mainland or at sea. The Jones Act is a federal body of laws that allows 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. If you or someone you know has been injured while working at sea, call the law office of Darryl Breaux and Associates so that we may help you get the compensation you deserve.
