If you were seriously hurt while working at sea, you may be entitled to compensation under the Jones Act. The Jones Act, which was previously known as the Merchant Mariner Act, protects workers who are hurt on inland bodies of water or offshore on ocean waters. Not only does the Jones Act protect the members of the crew, but it also protects the master of the crew as well. The Jones Act can cover injuries that were sustained at sea as well as offshore injuries and maritime injuries that occurred while in transit to a vessel or while a vessel was docked.
