USL&H and Jones Act Insurance

We match the needs of your maritime business with the smartest solutions available on today’s insurance market.

USL&H Insurance

USL&H insurance (US longshore insurance) was established in compliance with the Unites States Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act of 1927. The act was designed to cover the injuries of maritime workers, including dockworkers not specifically covered by the Jones Act. USL&H insurance provides maritime workers with coverages for any injuries sustained or illnesses contracted while performing their duties on or near navigable waterways. Included are docks, marinas, boatyards, and ports.

Jones Act Insurance

The Merchant Marine Act of 1920, more commonly known as the Jones Act, is a federal act that provides employee benefits similar to State Act Workers Compensation to masters and crewmembers of US flagged vessels. State Act Workers Compensation programs do not cover vessel crews. These employees, however, can file suit against their employer for negligence, the negligence of a co-employee or the unseaworthy condition of a vessel under the Jones Act.

Trust Maritime Insurance International

No matter how safe that you believe your vessel, dock, boatyard, or port is, your employees can still get injured and fall ill on your premises—and you could be held liable. Only proper USL&H and Jones Act insurance coverage can cover losses and defend potential lawsuits against your company.

With proper marine insurance coverage, your employees can receive compensation for their lost wages and other losses due to injuries and illness. Leveraging our deep experience and broad carrier networks at Maritime Insurance International, we can help to find you the best possible USL&H and Jones Act insurance policies at the lowest possible rates.
