Jones Act Attorney

Alex R. Hernandez Jr. PLLC has the experience and legal expertise to represent you in cases involving the Jones Act.

This federal statute was enacted by the Congress to ensure that the rights of seamen are protected. Under the Jones Act, the Merchant Seaman Protection and Relief Act, employers are required to pay weekly wages and living expenses for the duration of your injury that you have sustained during the course of work. You are to receive free medical care till such time that you can rejoin work or till you have reached the extent of medical improvement possible.

If you feel that you were asked to undertake a hazardous assignment without appropriate safety measures, then you can sue your employer for compensation. The spouse and dependents of a seaman who loses his life on job are to receive monthly benefits or a settlement for loss of income. We know how to build a strong case for our seamen clients. There are different aspects that we consider to strengthen our case. These include insufficient training, inadequate equipment, unqualified workers, poor maintenance practices, and not implementing safety regulations.
