Alaska Jones Act Claim and Maritime Law Attorney

Under the federal Jones Act, seamen are automatically entitled to certain benefits for injuries at sea (including Cook Inlet, Prince William Sound and navigable bays and rivers):

  • Maintenance and cure (daily support and medical care)
  • Unearned wages for the remainder of the voyage

You can also bring a Jones Act claim for permanent disability or injury stemming from:

  • Negligence of the captain or crewmates (including assault)
  • Unseaworthiness claims against the owner (e.g., fish slime on the deck, broken equipment)

Lastly, you may have a third-party product liability case against the manufacturer of defective equipment and machinery or the designer of the vessel itself.

In over 30 years practicing personal injury and maritime law (admiralty law) in Alaska, I have helped many clients recover damages for the risky work they do. I am a skilled trial lawyer and make the extra efforts to prepare your claim. For example, I represented a Kodiak woman who suffered a permanent injury while operating a crab giller machine. I visited approximately 20 different fish plants, determining that there was no industry standard for the equipment to ensure worker safety - every one had cobbled together a different configuration. Some of the devices were just unsafe.

Contact me today at 800-490-3946 to discuss your maritime law case. I offer a free consultation, including house calls and hospital visits. And I collect no fees unless I recover money for you.
