The Jones Act may provide recovery for the family of the missing barge worker who was found in the Mississippi River near LaGrange, Missouri.
Attorneys Who Are On Your Side
The attorneys at Godwin, Morris, Laurenzi & Bloomfield, P.C. have more than 100 combined years of experience representing Jones Act clients, unions, employee benefit funds, and personal injury clients in Tennessee, Kentucky, Indiana and throughout the South.
We represent unions in nearly every industry, including transportation, automobile, construction trades, health care, bakery, manufacturing, and public service, in all types of litigation in federal and state court, collective bargaining, NLRB and NMB, and arbitration.
We also represent employee benefit funds, health and welfare and pension funds in their advisory capacity functions and in litigation assuring full compliance with ERISA and all applicable regulations.
From our Memphis, Tennessee office, we have represented clients in the following types of personal injury cases:
- Jones Act clients, maritime tort claims, and Defense-Based Act Claims/Longshore claims — the last thing the towing company wants is to pay you the money you deserve for your injury, so they will do everything possible to get your claim denied or reduced.
- Railroad injury/FELA claims — the railroad owners have their own teams of experts on the ground, doing everything possible to get you to say the wrong thing so they can deny your claim.
- Work-related injury and workers' compensation claims — the employer certainly wants to deny your claim if at all possible, and the company doctor is on the employer's side.
- Automobile and tractor trailer accidents — the insurance companies are experts at denying claims.
We also represent families who have lost loved ones due to acts of negligence. While nothing can bring your loved one back, our wrongful death attorneys will work hard to obtain compensation to help you financially through this difficult time.
