O’Hara Fishing Corporation
Crewmen working even for the best fishing companies are sometimes permanently and seriously injured. Working at sea exposes crewmen to the constant risk of injury if proper safety precautions are not followed. Each vessel owner and employer owes their crewmen a duty to provide them with a safe place to work. When a crewman is injured through negligence or unseaworthiness they are entitled to compensation under Federal Maritime Law and the Jones Act.
The maritime lawyers at Stacey and Jacobsen focus their practice on representing injured seamen. They have represented thousands of injured fishermen and seamen injured in Alaska, Washington and Oregon, and their clients come from states throughout the nation. They have represented crewmen's families in landmark cases such as the sinkings of the ALASKA RANGER, ALEUTIAN ENTERPRISE, ARCTIC ROSE, and KATMAI.

If you have been injured working as a crewman, deckhand, or fish processor aboard a vessel owned by O'Hara Corporation, you should contact an experienced maritime lawyer to learn about your rights to compensation under the Jones Act and Federal Maritime law. In almost all cases, an injured worker is entitled to maintenance and cure regardless of whose fault the accident was. Under the maintenance and cure doctrine, reasonable medical bills must be paid for by the employer, and a seaman is entitled to a living allowance while he is recovering from his injuries. You have the right to select your own doctors.
O'Hara Corporation's Alaska fishing operations are based in Seattle, Washington. O'Hara owns three factory trawlers: F/T Constellation; F/T Defender; and F/T Enterprise. The vessels are crewed by 24 to 32 seamen who work as deckhands, fish processors, cooks, and engineers. The vessels fish for Pacific Cod, Yellow-fin Sole, Flathead Sole, and Rock sole.
