Jones Act

For people who doesn't know what Jones Act is, let me explain a little bit about it. The Jones Act is a federal statute found at 46 United States Code 688 that was passed by the United States Congress that allows an injured employee to sue their employer for ALL the damages that the employee has suffered as a result of an injury.

Anyway, we all know about the oil spill in Lousiana. If Louisiana Jones Act applies to you, consult a lawyer now and know your rights. You may be entitled to a sum of money that will compensate from the damages you are experiencing. The damages may include money for pain and suffering, money for past and future medical expenses from a doctor that you choose, money for past and future loss of wages and fringe benefits that you may have suffered due to your injury, and any other money damages that you have suffered.

You have the right so fight for it!
