Dallas Jones Act Lawyers

After OFfshore Accidents Harm Workers, Our Team Fights to Make Sure They Have the Means to Recover. No Matter what.

Dallas Jones Act Attorneys

Our Dallas Offshore Accident Firm has Held Large Companies Accountable for Because Injured Workers Deserve Answers

100 years ago, Congress passed the Jones Act. Today, it is still one of the most important maritime laws protecting the rights of injured seamen. In addition to providing for living expenses and medical care for injured or ill maritime workers, the Jones Act gives seamen the right to seek compensation when on-the-job injuries are caused by the negligence of an employer or vessel owner. Where maintenance and cure cover the bare minimum of what an injured worker needs, a Jones Act claim opens the door to the recovery of additional compensation, which can make all the difference for a seriously injured seaman.

Arnold & Itkin is known nationwide as a leading maritime injury firm.

Our team of Dallas lawyers have fought for countless workers under the Jones Act, doing everything in our power to make sure they recovered the full and fair compensation to which they were entitled. We do this because we care about our clients. When you come to our firm and speak with our Dallas Jones Act lawyers, you’ll quickly find that we care as much about your recovery as you do.

Who Is Covered by the Jones Act?

The Jones Act applies to any person employed on a vessel in navigable waters, as long as they spend at least one-third of their time working aboard the vessel and contributing to its function or mission.

This may include captains, mates, engineers, deckhands, fishermen, sailors, or others who work on:

  • Fishing vessels
  • Barges
  • Tugboats
  • Dive boats
  • Supply boats
  • Cruise ships
  • Crew boats
  • Dredgers
  • Pile drivers
  • Offshore oil platform service boats

This also includes oil drilling rigs such as jack-up rigs, semisubmersible rigs, drilling shipsand more.

For workers on oil platforms that are fixed to the seabed, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act may apply instead of the Jones Act.
