Pot Cod Vessel Claims
Pot cod vessel deckhands are seamen entitled to the protections of the Jones Act and the general maritime law. If you work on the deck of a pot cod vessel, you can rest assured that our attorneys will make sure you receive all the damages available to you; including no fault maintenance, cure and unearned wages – and damages under the Jones Act and for unseaworthiness; including damages for lost income, pain and suffering, and medical costs.
Whether pot cod fishing in the Alaska State Pacific Cod fisheries in the Aleutian Island, South Alaska Peninsula, Western Gulf or Chignik areas, or aboard vessels fishing the Federal Western Gulf fishery, deckhands working aboard pot cod fishing vessels have many things in common – their work is hard and fast, often requiring them to work long hours and in rough seas. Whether baiting a pot, throwing a hook, or running the block, deckhand work aboard a pot cod fishing vessel requires constant attention and little room for error.
