Kodiak Maritime Injury Claims

Kodiak, Alaska, was built upon the commercial fishing industry. Today, Kodiak is home to one of Alaska's largest fleet of commercial fishing vessels. In 2005, Kodiak's fleet of commercial fishing vessels landed 337 million pounds of fish and shellfish, placing it fourth in the United States in terms of commercial fish landings. No one has to tell the people of Kodiak that working as a commercial fisherman is the most dangerous job in the world.

Working upon the most treacherous waters in the world, each year crewmen on Kodiak-based vessels are injured or killed while working aboard trawlers, crab boats, seiners, and draggers. Crewmen injured or killed as a result of the negligence or the unseaworthiness of their vessels are entitled to compensation under the Jones Act and the General Maritime Law.
