Alaska Ranger Accident

Maritime Lawyers Who Represented Crewmen on The Alaska Ranger

Eleven crewmen who survived the sinking of the Alaska Ranger retained the firm of Stacey & Jacobsen, PLLC to represent them in claims for damages against the Fishing Company of Alaska – the owners of the vessel. Under the Jones Act, the surviving crewmen were able to make claims for personal injuries and psychological fear and fright of their near death experience. The crewmen miraculously survived the sinking, however, when they abandoned ship they had little hope of survival in the towering seas and frigid waters. They were near death when they were finally rescued by the Coast Guard. Through use of a Federal mediator, the eleven crewmen were able to reach settlement of their claims. The settlement amount of the claims was confidential, but involved multi-million dollars in compensation. Stacey & Jacobsen, PLLC also represented the estate of one deceased crewman from the Alaska Ranger.

The lawyers at Stacey & Jacobsen, PLLC have a long history of successfully pursuing wrongful death claims for injured seamen. They were the lawyers in such high profiled fishing vessel sinking cases as the Katmai, Galaxy, Arctic Rose, Aleutian Enterprise, Pacific Apollo, Amber Dawn, Vestfjord, Pace Setter, and Lin J. They have the knowledge, skill, and experience necessary to take on the tough cases and get fair results for their clients.
