Foss Maritime Injuries
Foss Maritime Injuries - Have you been injured while working on a Foss Martime vessel?
Foss Maritime is one of the leading maritime companies in the country. Based in Seattle, Washington, Foss Maritime operates a fleet of 90 tugs and 95 barges throughout North America. They have some of the most advanced and sophisticated equipment available, but even the best maritime employers have injury accidents.
Working aboard tugs and barges is hard, dangerous work, and sometimes even crewmen with years of experience sustain serious injuries through no fault of their own. Few injury accidents at sea could not have been prevented if proper safety procedures had been followed. When injuries happen through negligence or unseaworthiness, seamen are entitled to compensation under the Jones Act and the General Maritime Law.
Damages available include compensation for pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity, medical expenses, and retraining costs. Injured seamen are entitled to full and fair compensation for their injuries and should not accept less. Be sure to consult with an experienced attorney who specializes in maritime law before settling your injury claim with Foss or any other maritime employer.
