Jones Act Cases

The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, also known as the Jones Act, is a federal statute that protects our sailors who traverse the dangerous waters of the Mississippi River, Gulf of Mexico, and other large bodies of water. If you are familiar with this, you are most likely looking for Jackson Mississippi Jones Act Attorneys.

Jones Act cases have three requirements:

  1. The worker must be assigned to a vessel in operation of a navigable waterway.
  2. The worker’s duties must contribute to the vessel’s function.
  3. The connection to the vessel must be substantial in both time and nature.

To see if you qualify as a seaman under the three requirements of the Jones Act, dial the 3s today to speak with experienced Jackson Mississippi Jones Act Attorneys.

Sometimes it is difficult to determine whether an individual is covered under the Jones Act or the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, but the differences between the two can be tremendous, both materially and financially.
