Commercial Fisherman Worker Claims

If you work for a fishery, you know how demanding your job is. You probably work long hours and deal with an overwhelming pressure to produce during today’s short seasons. Working with heavy machinery, mooring lines and other dangerous equipment contributes to the risk of injury even more.

If you experienced a maritime injury while working on a commercial fishing boat, our law firm can help you get financial compensation from your employer under the Jones Act. We will fight to show the judge or jury the damage your injury has caused, and we will pursue compensation for the following:

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Job retraining
  • Lost wages
  • Diminished earning capacity
