Concentrating on Serious Injuries

Our attorneys have tremendous experience in hard-fought, challenging cases, winning many multi-million-dollar verdicts and settlements. Because of our reputation and abilities.

Jones Act Claims

The Jones Act sets out federal laws that cover all maritime workers and tourists injured offshore. Unlike in claims of workers' compensation, which governs employment-related injuries on land, the injured person must prove that the employer or other ship owner was somehow negligent in causing the injury. For example, if offshore workers are hurt because of defective equipment on an oil rig or vessel, they can file a Jones Act claims against their employers.

Our Miami maritime personal injury lawyers also help tourists who have been injured on a vessel. In one case, we represented a man who boarded a cruise and was injured. The cruise company insisted that, according to the terms printed on the ticket, they were not liable. However, the man was blind and our lawyers argued that because the ticket was not printed in Braille, he could not have possibly agreed to its terms. We won the case.
