Hello. I'm Locke Meredith and I have a Legal Lines Tip for you. Remember knowledge is power, and I want you to know if you're injured on or near navigable waterways, that is a boat can travel up and down the waterway, and it's in relationship to a vessel, that is you're a seaman or part of the crew, or you're injured because of some vessel defect or the negligent activity of the crew on the vessel, you may have a federal calls of action.

There are two kinds of claims. One, if you're a seaman, you may have what's called a Maritime or Jones Act claim, and the second is what's called a 905(b) calls of action. That's if you're not a seaman, but there's some negligent activity on the vessel or a defect on the vessel. So my Legal Lines Tip from me, Locke Meredith to you is, if you're injured anywhere near the waterways and it's in relationship to a vessel, you have a federal maritime claim.
