Admiralty and Maritime Claims

A variety of laws apply to offshore injuries including the Jones Act, General Maritime Law of the United States, and the Death on the High Seas Act. Understanding which law applies in your situation is the first step towards making a claim for damages after you or a loved one suffers an offshore injury. Since traditional workers’ compensation and personal injury laws do not generally apply to injuries on sea vessels or offshore rigs, and it is essential to learn how to protect your legal rights when an injury happens.

Often, those offshore employees work in labor-intensive jobs, and an injury or accident can effectively end a maritime career. The Jones Act and General Maritime Law of the United States can provide comprehensive damages to injured seamen hurt while working in the service of a vessel, including compensation for maintenance and cure, and medical care. Those injured on a cruise ship, tanker, cargo ship, super yacht and other sea vessels can take advantage of their legal rights under the Jones Act to pursue a claim for damages after an accident at sea.

Those making a Jones Act claim, Unseaworthiness claim, Maintenance and Cure claim, or other injury claim under maritime and admiralty laws must understand the strict time limit and proof requirements established under these laws. Thus, those who have been harmed or who have lost a loved one should seek legal representation as soon as possible to protect their legal rights.
