Until the 1920s, there was little to no legislation protecting the rights of those working at sea. Now, however, the Jones Act makes owners and employers of sea-faring vessels responsible for providing employees with a safe working environment.
Additionally, the Jones Act gives attorneys the ability to recover their client’s basic daily expenses and medical expenses while their claims are in the process of being resolved.
At Chenkin Law Firm, we fully understand the intricacies of the Jones Act and other legislation protecting the rights of those making a living at sea. And if you have been injured in a maritime accident, we can help you pursue the full compensation you deserve.
