Aggressively Pursuing Compensation on Your Behalf
The Jones Act is a federal statute that protects injured crewmembers, allowing these individuals to hold their employers responsible for negligence. Unfortunately, many cruise ship companies attempt to shirk responsibility and often deny recovery to deserving crewmembers. Injuries sustained at sea are serious and can include:
- Back injuries
- Broken bones
- Lifting injuries to arms and shoulders
Employers are required to supply their injured employees with "maintenance and cure" during the course of recovery. Maintenance and cure include the room and board of the injured seaman while they recover, as well as all necessary medical expenses. Whether your employer has failed to supply you with these benefits or has significantly underpaid your claim, the best time to take action is now.

David Rash is the kindest and most professional lawyer we have ever worked with. He is always timely in his responses to us and incredibly thorough. His experience and intelligence in his dealings makes working with him very easy. He was a godsend to us in a time of extreme duress. If you are looking for an excellent attorney, look no further. 5 STARS!- Mindy A.
I can’t thank David Rash enough for everything he has done for me! Not only did he go out of his way to make sure I got everything I deserved, David was very caring and polite. He went out of his way to keep me informed and just to check in on my health. He’s a good guy and very very good at what he does! A+! If you want someone that actually cares, go with Rash Mueller. Thanks again David.- Jordan
When I say..you’ve reached the right people..ur lucky to be in contact with them!! Although they couldn’t help me with my case..Leading up to the decision lori kept in contact, showed empathy, was straight forward with all detail! Lori told me more than my own drs or the hospital did..I have closure because of HER! So I still won! My case was complicated to move forward due to other reasons..but she ain’t never let me down when speaking to her! She speaks to you as if she knew you forever! I appreciate this firm so much because before they say NO..they try, the listen and the put work in!!! Thank you guys so much for everything!- Adrian B.
From the first phone conversation with Lori, to the first time meeting with David and Jeff, all the way through and to the conclusion of my case, I felt as if these people truly cared about what happened to me. They didn’t just see a potential “case”. They were upset with my situation. They wanted to help. Through the years that this whole process takes, I have gotten to know them a bit better, and they have gotten to know me. I now consider them less “my legal team”, and more a part of my extended family, whether they realize it, or like it, or not. I so appreciate their kindness, genuine compassion, and “got my back” attitude. I hope you are never in a situation to need these folks, but if you ever are, I highly recommend talking to them and seeing if it’s a right fit for all.- Joel F.
