Mobile Maritime Law Attorney Obtains Compensation for Injuries
Protecting the rights of maritime workers and passengers under state and federal law
The Alabama waterways provide an important source of employment for many maritime workers as well as a popular destination for vacationers. But when accidents occur, complex state and federal laws apply and they can add challenges to individuals who need compensation for injuries caused by the negligence of others.
If you suffer injuries offshore, you can benefit from maritime law attorneys in Mobile to help protect your rights to the compensation you deserve. The Law Office of J. Allan Brown, L.L.C. has the personal injury and maritime law experience needed to help you pursue the full expenses related to your injury.
Understanding the laws pertaining to maritime worker injuries
If you work on the navigable waters in Alabama, treatment of your workplace injuries may fall under federal law, rather than state workers compensation. Prior to the establishment of the Merchant Marine Act of 1920 (commonly known as The Jones Act), offshore workers had insufficient options for obtaining assistance or recovering damages for injuries sustained on their dangerous jobs.
Mobile personal injury lawyer J. Allan Brown has experience with admiralty and maritime law and is admitted in the U.S. District Court, Southern District of Alabama. He can reduce the stress of these complex legal cases so you can focus on recovering from your injuries.
Protection for cruise passengers who suffer injuries
Whether passengers travel on a large cruise ship or a smaller vessel, they face certain risks of injury or illness, ranging from head or spine injuries sustained from a slip on a wet deck to food poisoning. You may have limited medical options on a cruise ship and no access to a doctor on a small vessel. And passengers typically sign away certain rights as a condition for purchasing a ticket. Maritime law attorneys in Mobile can provide essential legal support for individuals injured on the waterways and elsewhere within Alabama. The Law Office of J. Allan Brown, L.L.C. provides the knowledgeable legal support you need.
