Are jack-up, semi-submersible, and inland barge drilling rigs considered vessels?


Often yes. The definition of vessel is extremely broad, so it’s important that if you’re on anything that floats, even in a casino barge, you may be covered under the Jones Act and you need to contact an experienced Jones Act lawyer right away.

If you or a loved one were injured while working offshore, it’s important to talk to an Experienced Maritime Attorney as soon as possible to ensure that you don’t waive any of your legal rights. Call our Maritime Attorneys for a Free, No Commitment Consultation at 1-888-603-3636 or by Clicking Here.
