Jacksonville Commercial Fisher Injury Lawyers

While commercial fishing is looked upon as a dream job, in reality, it is one of the most dangerous jobs in the U.S. Not only is it physically demanding, the hours are long and the commercial fisherman is at the mercy of shipowner to provide a working ship that is seaworthy and safe.

There are also injures that result from the nature of the job. Injuries to a commercial fisherman can cause crushed fingers and limbs. Workers can experience a permanent brain injury if a crane or mast falls. There is also the reality that other workers are not adequately trained and may fail to do their job, resulting in injury. All of these injuries are preventable. Unfortunately, some injuries are permanent and you will never be able to return to the job.

If the employer’s primary goal is to make money at any cost, he might view workers as expendable. Unfortunately, many commercial fishing ventures look at their employees just that way.

Whether you are a shrimper or troller, Maritime Law protects you if you are hurt on a commercial fishing boat.

Both the Jones Act and the Death on the High Seas Act protect sailors and their families in the event of an injury or death. Seamen who are injured at sea are entitled to medical benefits, compensation for lost income including food, shelter, and wages, and compensation – including pain and suffering – for any injuries.

Farah & Farah’s Jacksonville maritime attorneys will take on your case aggressively and immediately so you can get the compensation you deserve to take care of your family. We will make sure you receive the maintenance and benefits, in additional to all of the compensation allowed under law.

Call Our Jacksonville Commercial Fisher Injury Attorneys at 904-263-4610 for Help!

In most cases, the employer will fail to offer an adequate amount of fair compensation for your injury, and fail to do so in a timely manner. Our Jacksonville personal injury attorneys will not settle quickly if it is not in your best interest to do so.
