Cruise Ship Employee Injury

Anyone can get hurt on a cruise ship – even the cruise line’s employees. When an injured cruise ship worker files a claim, they could be entitled to additional compensation under the Jones Act, which provides comprehensive coverage for workers and crew who suffer an injury or death due to their employer’s negligence.

Whether you were a guest or an employee, victims of cruise ship accidents could receive significant compensation to help pay for the cost of medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Contact a cruise ship accident lawyer at The Barnes Firm for a FREE case evaluation.

I am very thankful and appreciative for the wonderful job that The Barnes Firm has done for me with my auto accident. I think I was lucky to have Landon and Ali worked on my case. They were always available for me.

I was in a car accident and contacted, The Barnes Firm. I was transferred to an attorney right away. The attorney was very pleasant and helpful. He answered all my questions. He set up an appointment that same week. The attorney himself, came over to my home. He went over the paperwork and explained the procedure very thoroughly. The attorney’s paralegal contacted me right away. The office has been in touch with me and genuinely concerned about my injuries. This firm was on top of my case. I highly recommend them. Please call The Barnes Firm.
