Even the best fishing companies sometimes have injury accidents that permanently injure crewmen. When those accidents occur as a result of negligence or unseaworthiness, injured crewmen are entitled to compensation under Federal maritime law and the Jones Act. In almost all cases an injured seaman is entitled to maintenance and cure. Every vessel owner owes their crewmen a safe place to work and a duty to provide a seaworthy vessel. Most injury accidents aboard fishing vessels can be prevented through proper safety precautions.
