Texas Maritime Law Attorneys
Diligent Advocacy from Mclaurin Law
When citizens and workers in Texas are hurt within state boundaries, they can count on Texas state law to provide remedies for compensation. What happens, however, to workers who are out at sea? In these cases, maritime workers-such as sailors and offshore workers-are protected by a federal law known as the Merchant Marine Act of 1920, or the "Jones Act."
If you are a maritime worker that has suffered an injury while on the job, a knowledgeable and dedicated Texas injury lawyer at McLaurin Law is ready to hear from you. Our firm is well-versed in the federal laws that govern injured maritime workers. We're prepared to aggressively navigate these cases toward maximum compensation throughout every stage of our client's claim.

What Is the Jones Act?
The Jones Act allows American seamen who have been hurt on the job to sue their employer for financial damages (if the employer did indeed contribute to the injury). "Seamen" applies to any worker who spends much of their job working on a vessel that is considered in navigation.
