The Jones Act protects seamen in cases of negligence

The Jones Act is an important federal law that protects seamen when they are filing lawsuits against their employers. The act governs both wrongful death and personal injury claims. It gives crew members and officers the right to sue their employers for negligence if it resulted in injuries or death while at sea.

Buying and selling yachts from outside the U.S.

If you own a yacht that was built and/or purchased outside of the U.S., it's essential to be in compliance with federal laws if you're going to sell the vessel to a U.S. citizen. It's also important to know what the requirements are if the yacht was made in the U.S. but flies a foreign flag.
