The Jones Act


Since 1989, the attorneys at Russell Mirkovich & Morrow have successfully handled claims for injuries to people who work offshore.

The Jones Act was passed by the U.S. Congress in 1920 to allow injured sailors or their survivors to recover compensation from employers. This legislation recognized the dangers of working offshore and provided a measure of security for injured sailors by permitting them to seek legal action against employers for damages in federal court.
