Icicle Seafoods Injury Claims
Injured in Alaska Working Aboard a Vessel Owned by Icicle Seafoods?
Workers employed as seamen aboard vessels owned by Icicle Seafoods are covered by Federal Maritime Law and the Jones Act. If you have been injured through negligence or unseaworthiness, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, lost earning capacity, medical and healthcare expenses, and past and future pain and suffering. In almost all cases, seamen who are injured or become ill aboard a vessel are entitled to maintenance and cure benefits. Under the maintenance and cure doctrine, Icicle must pay your reasonable and necessary medical expenses, and pay a daily living allowance until you have reached maximum medical improvement.
Icicle Seafoods is one of the largest fishing companies in Alaska. Icicle owns a fleet of floating processors that include the Arctic Star, Bering Star, Discovery Star, Northern Victor and Stellar Sea. Workers employed aboard these vessels as deckhands and fish processors have legal rights as Jones Act Seamen. Icicle owes a duty to their crewmen to provide them a safe place to work and to provide a seaworthy vessel. Unfortunately, seamen working for even the best fishing companies are sometimes injured. Jones Act seamen have a legal right to be compensated for their injuries when they have been injured through negligence or unseaworthiness
