Offshore Drilling Cases/Tanker Ships

Tanker and Freighter Cases

Simon & O’Rourke handles Tanker and Freighter cases as well as all Jones Act and Maritime Cases that involve accidents on vessels of all types and sizes.

Cargo Ship, Tanker and Freighter Cases

If you work on a tanker, freighter, bulk carrier or other type of vessel, you are a Jones Act Seaman and have special legal rights and protections under the Jones Act and General Maritime Law.

Simon & O’Rourke knows the Jones Act and General Maritime Law and has extensive experience representing injured those injured while working offshore.

Working as a Jones Act Seaman is physically demanding and dangerous. The unique hazards that result from working on a steel vessel in the high-seas bring risks not common to other jobs.

As a Jones Act Seaman, your employer and the vessel owner owe you special duties and obligations that include:

  • providing you a safe workplace,
  • providing a seaworthy vessel,
  • having properly maintained equipment,
  • providing qualified supervision,
  • providing adequate and proper training and
  • providing sufficient crew or helper to do a job.

When your employer or the vessel owner fail to meet their safety obligations under the Jones Act or General Maritime Law, serious accidents can, and do occur.
