Injured maritime workers have relied on the Jones Act since the 1930s, when the need for a uniform law to protect the rights of seamen and offshore workers injured at sea finally became so great that Congress was forced to act. Workers who are injured on a vessel in a navigable waterway within the scope and course of their job can rely on the Jones Act in order to hold an employer accountable for damages.
At the law office of Gordon, Elias & Seely, LLP, our maritime attorneys work with seamen and longshoremen from the fishing ports of Alaska to the oil rich Gulf Coast. Our goal as maritime lawyers is to put the full force of the Jones Act to work for injured maritime workers, and help you recover the compensation you and your family need.
