Commercial fishermen are in one of the most dangerous professions in the world and spend the majority of their lives on the sea. As fishermen they face unstable weather, unpredictable seas, and the natural dangers of being in the fisherman trade.
If you are a commercial fisherman who has been injured on a commercial fishing vessel, you are protected under U.S. maritime law. You can file a claim for compensation for your injuries and it will be filed through the federal courts under provisions of the U.S. admiralty law called the Jones Act.
This type of compensation claim and process is very different than if you worked on land and needed to file a worker's compensation claim in your state. You need to find legal representation for your fishing boat accidents needs who is fluent in both Maritime law and Federal acumen.
It matters that you hire a skilled and experienced fishing boat accident injury attorney that understands the maritime laws and has experience with the complex claims for accident and negligence victims. Whether it is you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries or a wrongful death we are here to help you understand your legal rights, and we will work hard to defend and protect your rights.
