Dedicated  Admiralty and Maritime Injury Attorneys 

EXPERIENCED ATTORNEYS REPRESENT JONES ACT SEAMEN INJURED WHILE WORKING ON A VESSEL

Because of the dangers they face, sailors are provided with some of the strongest legal protections of any workers in the country. The Jones Act entitles injured seamen to remedies that are not available to other workers hurt on the job. At The Law Offices of Friedberg & Bunge, our attorneys educate injured clients of their rights and aggressively pursue compensation they are owed by their employer.

Proven advocates assert the rights of sailors under the Jones Act

Rather than being subject to the workers' compensation laws, seamen are treated as wards of the state and entitled to the specific federal protections laid out in the Jones Act. To qualify as a Jones Act seaman, you must work on a vessel and be injured while acting in service to that vessel. Seamen are eligible to receive “maintenance and cure," which consists of an allowance and medical treatment until they have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI). Seamen bringing an unseaworthiness claim often receive damages for pain and suffering as well as past and future lost wages. Our skillful attorneys at The Law Offices of Friedberg & Bunge will work to prove that you qualify as a Jones Act seaman, regardless of whether you are a United States citizen.

Determined lawyers seek justice for other injured maritime workers

Because the Jones Act only applies to certain workers, your case may instead fall under the general maritime law that allows for negligence claims. Our attorneys will help you understand which laws apply in your case. The Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA) allows the family of maritime workers to seek compensation for their deaths when they were killed due to negligence at sea. Our attorneys work closely with clients to make sure they understand their rights under federal and state laws.
