Salmon Vessel Claims
Salmon seine and driftnet 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 salmon 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 salmon fishing in Bristol Bay, Cook Inlet, Southeast Alaska, Prince William Sound, in the waters off Kodiak Island, or Chignik, deckhands working aboard salmon fishing vessels have one thing in common – their work is hard and fast, often requiring them to work long hours and in rough seas. Whether running a seine skiff, stacking net, working the block and davit, or roundhauling a driftnet aboard, deckhand work on salmon vessels require constant attention and little room for error.
Our attorneys have decades of experience handling salmon fishing deckhand maritime injury and wrongful death claims. Our understanding of maritime insurance and how salmon fisheries and salmon vessels are run, gives you the added edge in having us resolve your maritime injury and wrongful death claims – be it by settlement or trial.
