Florida’s maritime industry employs thousands of people to operate ships, work on docks, in warehouses, and in a variety of other duties that are performed in close proximity to bodies of water.

If you have been injured in a maritime accident, you are entitled to certain benefits different from Florida’s workers’ compensation law.

The Jones Act awards compensation to seamen who have been injured at sea or aboard seagoing vessels. If there are third parties who are also responsible for your injuries, you may seek compensation from them or their insurance companies.
