Jones Act Claims: Special Compensation for Seaman Injury

Federal law provides special rights and remedies for victims of work-related injuries at sea. While the benefits and compensation extended under the Jones Act are often better than other personal injury cases, it requires an attorney with sophisticated knowledge of maritime accidents and the litigation skills to capture full damages.

Mr. Webb has practiced personal injury law since 1976, with remarkable success in maritime injury and boat accident claims. In recent cases, he has successfully recovered damages involving a Longshoreman’s case against an ocean-going cargo vessel, as well as two cases involving injuries on pleasure boat cruises in Corpus Christi Bay.
