But the Jones Act and other maritime laws allow for direct claims against employers who have been negligent or otherwise at fault. At Hatfield Law Office, our attorneys understand the nuances of maritime injuries and admiralty law, including Jones Act claims.

Maritime & Jones Act Claims

What Compensation Are You Eligible For?

The federal Jones Act gives qualifying employees this right as a way to promote safe working environments. Its goal is to hold employers and their employees accountable for reckless behavior.

If the negligence of your employer or co-worker contributed to your injuries, a successful Jones Act claim may provide you with compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Other financial losses connected to the injury
  • Pain and suffering

In addition to compensation for maritime injuries, you may be entitled to ongoing benefits (called maintenance and cure) similar to those available under workers’ compensation.
