Trust our experienced Jones Act attorneys to fight for compensation following accidents at sea.
Special procedures apply to any workplace injuries you may suffer on board ship. This can make it even more difficult than usual to figure out what steps you must take in order to secure compensation for your injuries.
Your Case Deserves a Maritime Law Specialist
Under the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, workers who are injured aboard ship have the right to sue the ship owner in a jury trial in order to recover personal injury damages. The families of deceased sailors may recover wrongful death damages in the same way.
Preparing for a jury trial requires a whole different skill set from preparing your average workers’ comp claim. This makes it extremely important to choose an experienced maritime law specialist to represent you.
At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, we handle Jones Act cases in cooperation with the respected firm of Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison, so you can rest assured your case will receive all the attention it deserves.
