Western Towboat Company is located in Seattle, Washington, and owns a fleet of 19 tugs and 5 barges. Unfortunately, crewmen working for even the best tug and barge companies sometimes suffer serious injuries. When those accidents happen because of negligence or unseaworthiness, injured crewmen are entitled to full and complete compensation under Federal Maritime Law.

Injured crewmen, in almost all cases, are entitled to maintenance and cure. They have the right to choose their own medical care providers and to receive medical treatment until they have reached maximum medical improvement. If you were injured through negligence, you have claims for compensation under the Jones Act. Damages under the Jones Act may include compensation for past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, medical and nursing expenses, retraining costs, and loss of enjoyment of life.

The lawyers at Stacey & Jacobsen, PLLC focus their practice on representing injured maritime workers. They know how accidents happen at sea and how they could have been prevented.
