What to do

In case of accidents

Jones Act Statute of Limitations

The Statute of Limitations in a Jones Act case is generally three ( 3 ) years from the date of the injury. There are exceptions to this general rule, however such as seaman assigned to vessel owned, operated, or contracted by the United States government. Actions against the vessel owner for unseaworthiness, must also be brought within three (3) years from the date of the seaman’s injury.
