Defending Victims’ Rights to Compensation for Maritime Injury or Death
One of the most dangerous occupations is commercial fishing. It takes safety-conscious individuals with strong muscles and an equally strong work ethic to endure the long hours and the harsh conditions. However, through no fault of the worker, accidents can and do happen.

Protections Under Admiralty Law
Recognizing the dangerous nature of work in the marine environment, lawmakers have established protections for commercial fishermen, seamen and other maritime workers. If you have suffered significant injury in the course of your employment or if you lost a family member in a fatal maritime accident, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
- Lost earning capacity
- Lost wages
- Medical expenses
- Retraining costs
Through legislation such as the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers Act (LHWCA) and the Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA), injured workers and their families may file claims and appeals for financial damages.
