Jones Act & Maritime Law
In lawsuits for Jones Act negligence or unseaworthiness regarding maritime law, the injured seamen can sue for future losses that include an inability to return to the job they held on the vessel before they were injured, causing them to suffer a permanent loss of income and/or wages.
In addition, recovery can include the following:
- Future medical bills
- Loss of use
- Pain and suffering
These damages can be paid by way of a settlement or by way of a court verdict.
