Maritime Law in Newport, Oregon

Newport is a city in Oregon and a county seat of Lincoln County. Newport is also the home of Burrows House Museum a popular attraction in the area and is surrounded by Yaquina Bay which connects to the Pacific Ocean.  Yaquina Bay is known for fishing, tourism, recreation, and research.

It is common for Newport residents to work at sea. This includes crewmembers and other workers who spend at least 30% of their time working aboard a U.S vessel in navigable waters who qualify for seaman status and, therefore, the protection provided by the Jones Act and general maritime law. 

The Jones Act and general maritime law provide remedies for workers when they become seriously injured in an accident.  Unfortunately, many maritime jobs have a high risk of causing injuries if proper steps aren't taken to ensure workers' safety.

Land jobs are governed by a certain different set of laws than jobs offshore or in navigable waters. Many times maritime incidents occur out of a worker's immediate control and cause the worker to become seriously injured on the job.
