Working on the Mississippi River, Ohio River and other waterways in Missouri and Illinois is strenuous work under exhausting and dangerous conditions. River workers perform their duties in all kinds of weather and for long stretches of time. Their work-related injuries, therefore, are often very serious.
There was a time when river workers and other seamen and maritime workers did not receive medical care and lost wages when they were injured. In a fatal accident, families were given no benefits. Congress changed that when it passed the Jones Act in 1920. The law recognizes the special dangers faced in a maritime job.
At Gray Ritter Graham in St. Louis, our attorneys know the Jones Act well, and we represent injured workers and the families of wrongful death victims to assure they get all the benefits to which they are entitled.
If you have been seriously injured or if a loved one was in a fatal accident, our Jones Act lawyers can explain your rights and assure that you are treated fairly. It costs nothing to call and ask us to review your case. Contact us as soon as possible so that we can preserve the evidence and begin our investigation.
