The well-versed cruise injury attorneys assembled by Isaacs and Isaacs will pursue justice and compensation in these types of negligence cases involving maritime laws.
Among the many laws that were created to protect crew members, The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, more commonly known as The Jones Act, is the main statute.

A Jones Act Law Firm makes it their priority to monitor the many COVID-19 employee lawsuits that are now being launched. When lawyers represent crew members who have suffered injury and illness, they seek to demonstrate that cruise ships failed to provide a safe place to work, even as they continued to place crew members in harm’s way. The goal is to reach the maximum settlement in your case so that you are restored and made whole in the eyes of the law.
