Injured at sea? We can help you exercise your right to compensation under maritime law.
Many people don’t understand what it takes to succeed as a sailor, working on huge ships at sea for months at a time. If you are injured while working at sea, you’ll find that many attorneys don’t understand how to help you.
Don’t Trust Just Any Attorney
You Need a Maritime Law Specialist
The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, aka the Jones Act, gives injured seamen the right to sue ship owners for damages rather than pursuing their claims through workers’ comp. The families of deceased seamen can also sue ship owners for wrongful death damages.
Because preparing for a jury trial is quite different than filing a workers’ comp claim, you definitely need to be sure you are working with an experienced attorney who understands how to approach Jones Act cases.
At The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker, we partner with the respected firm of Perona, Langer, Beck, Serbin and Harrison on maritime law cases, to ensure our clients’ cases receive all the attention needed to position them for success.

…How Much Is My Case Worth?

It’s hard to put an exact value on these damages, but you can rest assured we will work hard to negotiate a fair settlement with the ship owner’s attorney or insurance provider. If it is not possible to reach a settlement, we will exercise your right to sue the ship owner if appropriate. Possible damages include:
