If You’re An Employee, The Jones Act May Apply To You

The intense activity and challenging environment that maritime workers endure can easily lead to serious injuries or fatalities. If you were injured while working as a crew member, busboy, dock worker, navigator or any other type of seaman, you may qualify for federal benefits under the Jones Act.

At Rumizen Weisman Attorneys, we maintain a keen grasp on the details of the Jones Act (also known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920) and other aspects of maritime law. From filing a claim for negligence or unseaworthiness to helping you pursue maintenance and cure benefits, we will walk you through the process step by step.

If You’re A Pleasure Boater, You Need To Act Quickly

If you were injured in a recreational boating accident, it’s vital for you to act as soon as possible to preserve any available evidence.

Unlike a car accident, a boating accident leaves no tire tracks or skid marks, so obtaining eyewitness testimony can be key. In addition to taking photos of the boats and your injuries, write down the contact information of any third parties who observed the collision. Then, contact our lawyers right away to get us started working on your case.
