What If I Do Not Qualify Under the Jones Act?
Obviously it’s ideal in the cases that you do qualify under the Jones Act, but if you don’t there’s always the opportunity that we could take a look at the responsible parties and see if there’s a third party defendant that, under the general maritime law, there would still be a cause of action. Just because the Jones Act might not apply in your case, doesn’t mean that general maritime law won’t.
