Kentucky Maritime Injury Lawyer
Under terms of the Merchant Seaman Protection and Relief Act, often called the Jones Act, seamen injured while working on watercraft used in the performance of their job tasks on U.S. waterways and in U.S. coastal waters may file for maintenance and cure/ benefits, and in certain circumstances may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit. Workers on vessels and transport barges are entitled to full compensation for the effects of their injuries, whether the injuries occur on ferries, fishing trawlers, water taxis, or some other vessel on inland rivers and other inland navigable waterways throughout Kentucky.
