Portland Maritime & Boating Accident Attorney
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
Protection for Maritime Workers
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 Trial Attorneys PC 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.
