Seamen working as deckhands aboard longline vessels are entitled to the protections of the Jones Act and the general maritime law. Whether you are injured while working on the deck of a longline vessel fishing for halibut, black cod, pacific cod, or other ground fish, you can rest assured that our attorneys will make sure you receive all the damages available to you; including no fault maintenance, cure and unearned wages – and damages for Jones Act negligence and unseaworthiness; including damages for lost income, pain and suffering, and medical costs.
Whether longlining in the Gulf of Alaska, off the Aleutian Islands, in Southeast Alaska, off Kodiak Island, or out of Prince William Sound, Cook Inlet, Seward, Dutch Harbor, King Cove or Sand Point, deckhands working aboard longline vessels are subject to hard and dangerous work; often requiring long hours of work without sleep, in rough seas and in icing conditions.
Our attorneys have decades of experience handling longline vessel deckhand injury and wrongful death claims. Our understanding of maritime insurance and how the longline fisheries and longline vessels are run, gives you the added edge in having us resolve your maritime injury and wrongful death claims – be it by settlement or trial.

“Going through this difficult process it was nice to have such a great team at Johnson Kamai & Trueb. I was always getting updates from the attorney or paralegals.
