The Jones Act, also known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, regulates the US shipping industry. In addition to overseeing the transportation of goods and passengers in US waters, the statute also protects sailors, shipwrights, and assorted employees aboard American ships. Jobs on water, especially on the oceans, are exceptionally dangerous, and it’s an employer’s responsibility to take measures to safeguard the health and the lives of their employees. Injuries aboard ships are often fatal, and for those who survive shipping-related accidents, the road to recovery can be physically and financially draining.
If you have sustained an injury due to negligence while working in a shipyard or aboard a ship in US waters, you might be able to bring suit against your employer. A lawsuit loan from Argenta Legal Funding can help you hire an attorney who will fight for your rights.
Most people who are injured on the job are entitled to payments through workers’ compensation, but marine workers who are hurt aboard ships are required to file Jones Act claims. Because maritime law is a specialized branch of the law, brining suit against a negligent shipping company will likely require an expensive attorney with a specialized skill set. Even in the best of circumstances, it is difficult for most people to pay such fees, but if you are laid up in the hospital and unable to work, it can be virtually impossible to pay your attorney’s bills. We exist for precisely such situations.
