Rhode Island Jones Act Lawyer Urges Crew To Protect Their Claims

Rhode Island Jones Act lawyer, John K. Fulweiler is a licensed captain. Before becoming an attorney (and even during law school) John worked commercially and actually was a Jones Act crewmember. (Don't you want to retain an attorney to persue your Jones Act claim that actually knows what it's like to work aboard a vessel?). Sometimes, following an injury, a Jones Act sailor may be asked to "waive" his or her claim in exchange for some (no doubt small) amount of compensation. A Jones Act crewmember whether located in Rhode Island, New York, Florida or where have you, should consider speaking with an admiralty attorney before agreeing to waive any claim. Waiving a claim usually involves serious questions and should not be done hastily or because of a dire need for money. A maritime attorney with experience handling claims on behalf of injured crewmembers can help you understand the consequences of waiving a claim, can explain the applicable law and, typically, can provide additional options for you to consider.

Underway and making way.
