Congress designed the act to ensure that seamen are treated with the utmost respect and decency by their employers. The Jones Act effectively incentivizes oil companies and vessel owners to create an environment where work conditions are kept at the highest level of safety and order. And when maritime employers do not behave accordingly, we are empowered to act on your behalf. The Jones Act offers injured seamen access to substantial payouts that are far greater than the kind available under workers' compensation.
