Maritime & Boating Accident Attorneys
Offshore Injuries and Jones Act Cases in Oregon & Washington
Injured seamen and offshore workers are protected by federal laws such as:
- The Jones Act
- The Longshoreman and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act
- The Death on the High Seas Act
These laws shield injured maritime workers who are hurt on the job, protecting
their right to fair treatment and compensation. In addition, laws affect
cases involving non-work-related injuries, such as those suffered by a
ship's passengers and recreational accidents, such as those involving
jet skis or personal watercraft and boats.
While many attorneys are not equipped to provide aggressive counsel and
representation in these types of cases, at Paulson Coletti we are thoroughly
familiar with The Jones Act and other maritime injury laws. Our Portland
injury attorneys have decades of collective experience in helping injured
sailors and offshore workers. We know the policies designed to address
boating and maritime injuries, and we are equipped to answer our clients'
questions and provide them with knowledgeable advocacy.
Should I call a Portland personal injury attorney?
If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident covered by The Jones
Act, the importance of contacting an attorney cannot be overstated. It

you make informed decisions. Choosing the right lawyer could be the most
important decision you make immediately following an accident.
