Mississippi Jones Act Attorney

Biloxi Maritime Lawyers

The Jones Act is a part of maritime law that allows injured seamen to sue their employers for negligence. Jones Act cases are very different to Workers' Compensation claims and require that you prove negligence or wrongdoing caused your injuries. If you believe that you may be entitled to compensation under the Jones Act, you need the help of an experienced Mississippi Jones Act Attorney.

The Mississippi Jones Act attorneys of Reeves & Mestayer, PLLC have a proven track record of success in representing injury victims. We have recovered over $120 million in verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients since the year 2000, including a $3.6 million verdict for a Jones Act seaman in 2003 (reduced to $1.6 million on appeal).

We are dedicated to helping everyday people get their fair chance in court. We represent individuals and families who have been injured by the negligence and wrongdoing of others. We believe that you deserve legal representation which is comparable to or better than the high-priced teams of attorneys working for the corporations and insurance companies you are up against. We know how they operate. Our attorneys used to work for the other side.

The Jones Act does not apply to all maritime workers. If you do not qualify as a seaman under the Jones Act, do not worry; there is still legal recourse for your injuries. We have provided the following pages to help you get familiar with the laws that may apply in your case:
