What is the difference between Jones Act Claims and Longshore Claims?
A: The difference between a Jones Act claim and a Longshore claim is significant. A seaman is entitled to bring a claim under the Jones Act, whereas a harbor worker, longshoreman, dock repairer or other stevedore is entitled to bring a claim under the LHWCA or the longshoreman and harbor Worker's Compensation Act.
