You've Got Personal Injury Rights on Land and at Sea

Did you know that the US government provides a variety of laws that protect the rights of injured people at land and at sea. According to this recent analysis, US law specifically protects employees injured in workplace accidents, such as sea crew members, railroad workers and other on the job injuries. Two important laws take effect here: Federal Employers’ Liability Act (FELA), 45 U.S.C. § 51, and The Jones Act, 46 U.S.C.App. § 688 (1958). In fact, according to the Injury Board report, an injured person at sea does not need to prove as much negligence has occurred, does one injured on the mainland. So if you or someone else you know experience an injury personal, at land or sea, contact a top injury attorney right away. Are you ready for an accident? Learn about other negligence cases, such as medical negligence and malpractice. Also educate yourself about premises liability, as apartment injuries are very common, especially in New York City. We suggest that you also print and save this helpful Got Into Accident guide so you can be prepared in case of a motor vehicle accident.
