My Best Advice

Many times I have witnessed Jones Act Cases Be thrown out before it has even started. Why? Because the claimant was not honest or not truthful. And a lot of times, those people do not understand why their case was dismissed.

I have to be frank here. You have to be honest on everything about your case. You need to make sure that all the good and bad facts are brought to the table from the beginning. If you do not, then you will loose. Sometimes the truth hurts, but remember it is the truth that sets you free.

If you want to win your Jones Act Case, you need to make sure to take the proper steps. I have been handling Jones Act Cases since the 1980's. I have seen and learned a lot.

Ready Reserve Force Ship Injuries:
 

The Ready Reserve Force, or RRF, is a fleet of 51 reserve ships. The Ready Reserve Force fleet is maintained and crewed by the Maritime Administration. The ships can be activated in four, five, 10 or 20 days. Military Sealift Command inspects the ships. When activated, RRF ships come under the operational control of MSC.

The RRF includes fast sealift ships, roll-on/roll-off ships, lighter aboard ships, modular cargo delivery system ships, heavy lift ships, crane ships and government-owned tankers. Because of their configurations, RRF ships handle bulky, oversized military equipment.

 

Know your rights:

If you are injured aboard a USA owed vessel then your case will fall under the Suits in Admiralty Act/ the Public Vessel Act. All injury lawsuits under the Suits in Admiralty Act or the Public Vessel Act must be filed in US Federal District Court.

The Federal Courts are made up of Circuits. For example, if you file a lawsuit in California will be heard by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Most Suits in Admiralty Act lawsuits can be filed in the Federal District where the injured Seaman resides.

In some Circuits, including the Ninth Circuit, you can only sue the United States. Even if you are employed by a private outfit.
