Processor Claims

Call Our Alaska Maritime Injury Lawyers

Fish processors working aboard factory processing or catcher/processor vessels are seamen entitled to the protections of the Jones Act and the general maritime law. Additionally, a processor working on vessels in Alaska waters may also qualify for Alaska Workers’ Compensation.

If you are injured while working aboard a factory or catcher/processor vessel, rest assured that our attorneys will ensure you receive all the damages available to you; including no fault maintenance, cure and unearned wages as well as damages under the Jones Act and for unseaworthiness; including damages for lost income, pain and suffering, and medical costs.

You Deserve Justice. We Can Help.

Fish processors are often required to work long hours, with little time for sleep, in cold, damp factory lines and freezer holds. Inadequate breaks and cold weather clothing and gear may lead to frostbite and other cold weather injuries. Freezer and plate freezer malfunctions may lead to back, foot and hand injuries; as well as exposure from leaking Freon, ammonia, and other potentially life threatening chemicals.

Our attorneys have decades of experience handling fish processor claim. Our understanding of how fish processing vessels and catcher processor vessels are put together and run gives you the added edge in resolving your claims – be it by settlement or trial.
