Boating Collisions

While working aboard a maritime vessel in waters outside of Louisiana, and elsewhere across the U.S. and the globe, there are often unique and difficult challenges for those employees. Unfortunately, many of these hazards often result in serious injury and death of workers when accidents occur. The law does, however, provide special protection for maritime workers under the Jones Act and other maritime laws.
