A very specific body of law, known generally as admiralty law, governs maritime injury cases. Federal laws control some of these matters, and if you have been injured by the carelessness or negligence of another, you may be able to file a claim under the Jones Act or the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. The skilled Beaumont maritime attorneys of the Bernsen Law firm can help.
The Jones Act

The Jones Act is applicable to seamen who are injured on large commercial vessels. It allows for seamen to file a claim for injuries that are a result of the negligence of the vessel’s owner or of other employees.
The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act

The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act covers workers injured on waterways, including those involved in loading, unloading, repairing or building vessels. It further covers damages from diseases that arise from duties performed in the course of such employment.
