Jones Act

Everett Jones Act Lawyers

Seattle Maritime Attorneys

The Jones Act is a law enacted almost a century ago, recognizing the special dangers and maritime injuries that people working on the water face. It parallels the workers compensation system, and depending on your circumstances, may provide better compensation for you when you are injured. Talk to a lawyer at our firm about your options. We want the best for you.

You might be surprised at the wide variety of jobs covered, and not just on the ocean. If someone else's negligence played a part in your injuries, it is more than likely the Jones Act will be a possibility for your financial recovery. Passengers on vessels are also covered. If you have lost a loved one in such an accident, you may be able to sue under the Jones Act.

If the Jones Act could be applicable, you should contact an attorney experienced with the Act, since it is very different from other personal injury cases.

These cases may not need a trial. In fact, you don't even have to prove the vessel owner knew of the problem with the ship. If it wasn't "seaworthy" and safe for its intended purpose, the owner is liable.

Mulvihill Law Firm has served clients in the Seattle area since 1976. We handle even the most difficult admiralty law cases involving tug boat injuries, fishing boat accidents and others in an efficient manner, with dedication, determination and compassion.
