River Injuries / Jones Act

Working on the river is hard, and river injuries are common.

Deckhands, mates, pilots, engineers, cooks and others employed in the river industry work long hours and are often away from home weeks at a time.  Employers have a duty to provide you with a reasonably safe place to work.  Unfortunately, though, companies sometimes take shortcuts in safety or crew issues, which can lead to devastating river injuries.

If you’ve been hurt working on the river, you may have questions such as:

  • How am I supposed to be paid while off work?
  • Who pays for my medical treatment and what doctors can I go see?
  • How will I support myself and my family if I can’t go back to work?
  • What is the Jones Act and what remedies are available to me under the law?
  • Am I entitled to a settlement?

The river industry has insurance adjusters and lawyers looking out for their best interests.  Who’s looking out for yours?

  • 5 star review  Archie and I cannot say enough good things about Dan. It is so important, and sometimes difficult to find someone who is honest, ethical, and keeps their word. Dan is all of this and more. He was patient with us, helped us to understand the process, and he always put our best interest first. We are so appreciative of him and all he did for us. We would highly recommend Saladino & Schaaf to anyone.

  • 5 star review  Dan took my case and ran, he was very honest with his thoughts on it. He managed to get more out of it than he or I thought would come from it. If you are injured and need an attorney call Dan Stratemeyer.
