Dutch Harbor Injuries & Accidents
If you have been injured working as a crewman aboard a boat near Dutch Harbor, or anywhere in Alaska, it is imperative you understand your rights to compensation under maritime law. Your employer owes you a safe place to work and a seaworthy vessel. When you are injured through negligence or unseaworthiness, you are entitled compensation for your injuries under the Jones Act and General Maritime Law.
This compensation may include damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, medical expenses, disfigurement, medical expenses, and loss of future earning capacity. In almost all cases, under the doctrine of maintenance and cure an injured seaman is entitled to have all his reasonable and necessary medical bills paid related to a shipboard accident or illness.
