Jones Act Cases

If you are a seaman with a Jones Act case, you may find that the process is long and that you need money to pay for on-going medical care and other living expenses. We at Fast Funds understand the plight of having to support a family until your case is settled favorably. We offer settlement cash advances for Jones Act cases. Such advances are based on the potential outcome. Unlike other pre-settlement funding sources, we do not charge interest on the advances; we simply buy a very small percentage of the expected settlement. If the unfortunate happens and the case is lost, we do not even have to be paid back!

What Are Jones Act Cases?

The Jones Act is a federal maritime law that provides benefits to workers who are injured while working on a vessel. The Act also makes provisions for the families of seamen who are killed in the performance of their duties. Under the Jones Act, a seaman and his family may recover against an employer for lost wages, future lost earning capacity, past and future medical expenses and damages for pain and suffering, as well as mental anguish.

Under the Jones Act and general maritime law, a case may be filed only by a qualified “seaman.” The seaman must be on board a vessel “in navigation” at sea or in a body of water that is connected to interstate or international commerce when injury occurred. Additionally, the seaman must spend a substantial amount of work time on board the vessel.

Fishermen, cruise ship workers, ferry boat workers, tug boat workers, barge workers, oil platform workers, construction workers of vessels and barges, and commercial divers all can be classified as seamen under the Jones Act. Filing a case under the Jones Act can be complex and take some time before a settlement is reached. Let Fast Funds provide you with the money you need while waiting for settlement. We have no hidden fees or charges associated with our funding. Contact us today at 1-866-798-2941 or via e-mail at money@fastfunds4u.com or fill out the online application and get started today!

Disclaimer

NOTE: The term "loan" or "loans," where used to describe lawsuit funding is not an accurate legal or financial definition of the transaction. IT IS NOT A LOAN. The transaction is a non-recourse purchase of a portion of the proceeds of a potential future case award or settlement. A loan is a transaction that always requires repayment. Our lawsuit funding only requires repayment if the plaintiff receives a favorable cash settlement award. If the plaintiff loses their case, they do not repay anything.
