Maritime Injury

 

Congress enacted the Jones Act in 1920 in order to protect the rights of injured seaman, crewmembers, and officers.  This Act established a uniform body of law governing maritime personal injury, a basis for recovery when injured on a maritime job, and is applicable to practically every vessel type on navigable waters.

 

Are you entitled to Maintenance and Cure and are having difficulty receiving this assistance from your employer?   If this Maintenance and Cure is unfunded by the employer, then the injured seaman can bring action against their employer under a Jones Act injury claim or an individual claim.

 

The US Bureau of Labor Statistics released findings in 2013 from years of study regarding occupational injuries in various industries for 2012.  The study reads, “Although transportation and material moving occupations had the highest preliminary number of fatal work injuries in 2012, the major occupational group with the highest fatality work injury rate was farming, fishing, and forestry (23 fatalities per 100,000 workers)”.
