The Jones Act Protects Injured Shipping Workers
Through the Jones Act, seamen who are working for CMA CGM and are injured due to their employer’s negligence are entitled to compensation for:
- Lost wages and earnings potential
- Present and future medical costs
- Potential vocational retraining, depending on the extent of your injuries
Identifying the laws that apply to your situation and the right to compensation they may provide requires an in-depth understanding of maritime law. Learning the ins and outs of the law to win your case or claim while trying to recover from your injury can be difficult if not impossible, as it takes years of legal study to learn statutes and many years of practicing the law to understand how those statutes are applied. This is where a maritime attorney from Brais Law Firm becomes more valuable than you can imagine. If you work with our team, we will collect evidence on your behalf to prove the liability of CMA CGM, then draft the claim and negotiate with their insurance company to generate the highest settlement possible. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, we’ll take the insurance company to court on your behalf.
