Maritime Law: Who Is Covered?

Maritime law, sometimes called admiralty law, is the law that governs happenings on the water. General maritime law covers marine shipping laws, cargo damage and vessel arrests, but it most often concerns itself with the welfare of maritime workers.

Maritime law and the Jones Act provide many rights to seamen, including the right to seek compensation after an injury. You are considered a seaman if you:

  • Work on a vessel capable of navigating in American waters, such as an ocean vessel, tugboat, fishing boat, barge or cruise ship
  • Are employed as a crew member on the vessel as a deckhand, captain, cook, engineer, rig worker or stevedore
  • Spend at least 30 percent of your working time on a vessel in navigation

If you are a seaman who has been injured on an ocean vessel, on the Mississippi or on another inland waterway, finding an experienced maritime legal team to help you recover damages is very important.

Let us make the choice easy for you.
