Experience Matters In Workboat Injury Claims

Do you work on a commercial fishing boat, a tugboat, a tanker or another workboat? Have you been injured on the job? You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.

The Jones Act is a federal law that provides compensation for seamen who have work-related injuries that are caused by the negligence of their employers or fellow workers. The definition of seamen includes workers who have been injured on workboats, including:

  • Tugboats
  • Crew boats
  • Supply boats
  • Cruise ships
  • Fishing ships
  • Tankers
  • Cargo ships
  • Barges
  • Commercial fishing boats

You may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other injuries and losses. Contact me, attorney Manuel Gonzales, to learn more.

Working at sea can be very dangerous work. Workboats have countless dangers. From adverse weather to slip-and-falls to drowning at sea, almost anything can happen. Fortunately, the Jones Act provides relief for injured seamen and the family members of fatally injured seamen.
