Adam L. March 30, 2023
Excellent Attorney Patrick was a great lawyer. He is very knowledgeable and patient with me. He went above and beyond and took the time to answer all my questions so I could understand the issue I was facing. Without Patrick I would have been lost. He made it easy to sleep at night knowing he was handling my case. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Legal Answers

Q. If i get hurt on a cruise ship as a passenger should i have to pay the jones act fee???. I fell and i have doctor report
A: The Jones Act only covers injuries to the crew of the vessel. Passenger injury claims fall under general maritime law. I am not quite sure what fee you would have been required to pay but it most likely had nothing to do with the Jones Act. Consult with a maritime attorney to discuss any remedies you may be entitled to.
