Sailors Injured Shoreside

Lawyers for Maritime Workers Injured on Shore


Many crewman injuries occur while working on docks and wharves. If the injured crewman is acting within the scope of his or her employment at the time of the accident, there may be legal options for pursuing full and fair compensation and maintenance and cure.

The federal Jones Act covers injured seamen even when the accident or negligent injury occurs ashore, as long as the injury is a result of the employer’s negligence. The Jones Act also covers crewmen who suffered injury due to negligent safety precautions while working aboard another vessel at their employer’s direction. Seamen who are injured on a third party’s vessel or premises may also bring an action against the owner(s) of the vessel or property.

Many maritime workers do not realize their legal rights to seek compensation for negligent injuries extends to accidents onshore or on another vessel. To learn more about maritime and admiralty law, the Jones Act and longshoreman accident law, and how these laws may apply to your accidental injury or the wrongful death of a family member, please contact the Houston, Texas, law firm of Stevenson & Murray today.
