Do You Have a Claim for Sun Stroke (or Heat Stroke) Under the Jones Act?

Jones Act Oct 13, 2022

Working onboard a ship or on a platform on open water presents several risks. Along with the risk of serious injuries, these risks include the risk of harm caused by prolonged sun exposure. Many offshore workers who spend long days on deck suffer from sun-related health conditions—including sun stroke (or heat stroke) in the most serious of cases.


Can You File a Maritime Injury Claim for Sun Exposure?

Jones Act Oct 6, 2022

While maritime workers face prolonged sun exposure year-round, working in the sun can be especially dangerous during the summer months. Maritime workers regularly suffer exposure-related injuries on land, on vessels, and on rigs and platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, and sadly some of these injuries prove fatal. If you have suffered severe burns, have suffered a heat stroke or heart attack, or are dealing with any other medical condition caused by sun exposure on the job, you may be entitled to compensation, and you should speak with a Mississippi Jones Act lawyer about your legal rights.
