Biren法律团体 Handles 琼斯法案》 Cases for Injured Maritime Workers in 加州

The maritime industry is instrumental to our country's commerce; however, this work can be incredibly dangerous. In an effort to protect maritime workers and ensure that commerce is not interrupted, Congress passed the 琼斯法案》. This law allows employees to sue their employers for injuries sustained on the job if they are caused by their employer's negligence or the unseaworthy condition of boats or vessels.

If you are a maritime worker who has been injured on the job or you've been seriously on the job, contact Biren法律团体 for a free consultation.

Am I covered by the 琼斯法案》?

The 琼斯法案》 was designed to protect maritime workers who are exposed to dangerous conditions on the job. This means that you would be covered by this law if you were injured while working in the service of a vessel. However, you must also be able to show that the vessel owner, vessel operator or a crew member’s negligence contributed to the injury, or that an unsafe condition contributed to the cause of your 事故.

To file a claim under the 琼斯法案》, you must also qualify as a seaman. According to the United States Supreme Court, you would only qualify as 一个水手,如果:

  • You were assigned to a vessel, or fleet of vessels, that was in operation
  • Your duties contributed to the vessel’s function or mission
  • Your connection to the vessel was substantial in time and nature

Damages You May Be Eligible to Recover

If you can establish that your employer is liable, they will be responsible for all of the damages and losses you have suffered as a result of the 事故. 这可能 include compensation for pain and suffering, disfigurement and mental anguish, as well as economic losses like wage loss. 这可能 also include the loss of fringe benefits from your time out of the workforce and compensation for future medical expenses.
