we are experts with maritime law

The 1920 Merchant Marine Act, commonly referred to as the Jones Act, is a federal law that allows seamen to sue on-the-job injuries caused by negligence on the part of vessel owners, businesses, shipmasters, or fellow crew members. The Jones Act was based strictly on the 1908 Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), which covers employees on the railroad; it was tailored to meet maritime workers ‘ needs. Congress created the act because the rules for compensation of standard workers do not apply to seamen.

Unlike laws regulating liability and negligence for non-maritime workers, the Jones Act makes it relatively easy for qualified seamen to sue their employers if they are hurt while working on a vessel owned and operated by American owners.
