They used to be my friends

When you are a seriously injured fisherman or crew member, sometimes your employer treats you different. They either refuse to pay for your doctor or have an attitude about you getting medical treatment. Crew members that you have hung out with for a long time, start to distance themselves from you. People you thought were your friends are now "siding" with the vessel owner. Where do you turn when your world is closing in? We can help. Call us. We have been doing this for years. We can help you get needed medical treatment, so you can get your life back.


It's an Insurance Claim


At the end of the day, this is an insurance claim. The vessel has insurance for this. In our experience, the insurance companies are usually professionals. It is boat owners that get upset. No one needs to take you getting injured personally. But sometimes they do, When this happens to you - call us.


The Biggest Misconception Injured Seaman Have of The Legal System

There's a huge misconception about the Jones act that needs to be dispelled right now for you to understand why you'll need a lawyer to fight for your benefits if you have been injured on a vessel:

Just because you have a legitimate injury and cannot work, it does not mean that you will receive Jones Act benefits or all the Jones Act benefits which you are entitled. That's because benefits are paid by your employer's insurance company, which has an arsenal of lawyers who are paid to deny your claim.

Years of Experience on Your Side

When the other side has a lawyer, you need one, too. Too often, injured Seaman are out-lawyered by the insurance company. The Turley Law Firm attorneys go toe to toe with the big insurance company lawyers. We will do will do all we can to ensure that you collect the benefits to which you are due. The thousands of cases we have won have given us the best experience possible to handle your case in the most effective way possible.

We know the in's and out's of gathering medical evidence, filing well-documented claims, and appearing at Court. We know how to protect you from insurance company attempts to poke holes in your case, and we know how to handle all types of hearings and appeals before Judges.
