Jones Act Cases

Fair Rate Funding specializes in settlement funding for Jones Act cases in the United States.

The Jones Act is codified in 46 U.S.C. § 30104 et seq. and protects seamen from personal injury and/or death. Cases under this Federal Law usually occur in Federal Court.

The Jones Act was enacted to protect the sea worker financially from the dangers in his work environment. Liability is based upon negligence law and a vessel owner is liable for even a small breach of the duty of care to these workers.

The victim is entitled to “maintenance and cure” for injuries sustained while on a vessel at sea – regardless of negligence. Cure refers to surgical procedures, hospitalization, rehabilitation and medical care. A small daily stipend similar to what the sea worker would be entitled to on the ship, is provided and referred to as Maintenance. Once the victim has reached their maximum medical improvement, the Maintenance and Cure is exhausted. Even if the worker is not able to return to work, under Jones Act provisions, these benefits will eventually cease.

The complexity of these cases often results in settlement negotiations dragging on for long stretches of time and because injuries in these legal proceedings are often severe, many plaintiffs undergo significant and time consuming treatment.

However, during that time, the plaintiff still has to pay his/her bills, eat, and live. All the while, because he/she can no longer work in the same capacity as before, significantly less money is coming in. Many plaintiffs face financial difficulty and need cash now to keep up with the expenses.

Lawsuit settlement funding can be obtained to meet this need. These loans are offered by various settlement advance companies and may be right for you. In anticipation of a sizable settlement at the conclusion of the lawsuit, the legal funding company can advance cash now.
