The test for whether you are Jones Act seaman does not have much to do whether or not you were hurt on the water. Instead, the test asks whether at the time of your injury - on land or water - your basic job assignment required you to work on a vessel. If you have questions about whether you are a Jones Act seaman, please give us a call.
