California Jones Act Offshore Accident Attorneys

Supporting Clients at the World's Busiest Waters

The ports near Los Angeles and San Francisco are some of the most heavily trafficked in the world, and while the Jones Act and other federal protections extend only to American flagged vessels, the office of Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P. is committed to putting federal protections to work for injured seamen wherever possible.

We use federal protections, such as the Jones Act, to help offshore workers when they suffer an offshore injury in the normal course of their work as a result of another crewmember's or superior's negligence. Our philosophy is to carry a small case load, so that we can work closely with our injured clients and make sure that we pursue every avenue for compensation.

California Jones Act Lawyers

With a coast as large and busy as California's, there is a great need for experienced and effective offshore accident attorneys. Maritime jobs are among the most hazardous in the nation, and they require that every crew member is working at the top of their game. When injury does strike, it is crucial that you understand your rights and options.

The Jones Act protects all seamen across the nation and governs the liability of owners, operators and employers in cases of work related injury or death.

Know Your Rights
