As a crewman aboard a fishing vessel you are protected by Federal Maritime Law. If you are injured through negligence or unseaworthiness, you are entitled to compensation for past and future lost wages, lost wage earning capacity, past and future pain and suffering, medical expenses, and educational retraining costs. In almost all cases, your employer must pay you maintenance and cure. Your employer and the owner of the vessel owe you a duty to provide a safe place to work and a seaworthy vessel. Most accidents aboard fishing vessels can be prevented if proper safety procedures are followed.
