Fighting to get what is right for you and your family
Cases involving an injury that happened to a ship, vessel, or barge worker fall under the Jones Act. These cases are significantly different than standard workers' compensation cases. A different standard of evidence applies. Also, in these cases, workers who have been injured on the job are entitled to pursue compensation for pain and suffering, as well as medical costs and lost wages. Since our law firm focuses specifically on injury cases and nothing else, we have the depth of knowledge of these matters to truly fight for your interests.
Whether you are a barge operator, a member of a ship's maintenance and repair crew or any other “at sea” laborer who has been injured on the job, we can help. Our attorneys understand that working on a coal barge, grain barge, oil barge, steel barge, or any other ship on the Mississippi River or Ohio River is serious work. We will handle your case with the appropriate seriousness, working hard to get you the compensation you deserve.
