Alaska Crab Boat Sinking

Anchorage, Alaska, Crab Boat Sinking Attorneys

Alaska maritime injury and wrongful death lawyers

Every year crew members on Alaskan crab boats die because of the unsafe conditions of a ship or the negligent actions of ship owners.

Crab fishing is dangerous even in the best of circumstances. When a ship owner/captain fails to follow safety procedures, neglects maintenance and repairs, works in rough weather conditions, or overloads a ship in a way that causes it to be unstable, the ship owner may be held responsible for the crab boat sinking.

Federal maritime law, the Jones Act, and the Death on the High Seas Act allow families to seek compensation if a loved one died when a crab boat sinks. When negligence leads to an unnecessary and tragic death, this is called "wrongful death."

Prompt investigation of a crab boat sinking case is essential to protect the rights of family members to seek compensation under maritime law. Call toll free: 1-866-974-9633 to speak directly with an experienced maritime injury attorney at the Anchorage law office of Beard Stacey & Jacobsen, LLP.

Our firm has handled more than 50 maritime wrongful death cases. We have recovered millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for families in Alaska, Washington, and throughout the U.S. and have handled a number of high-profile cases, including the following vessels:

  • Arctic Rose

  • Vestfjord

  • Pacesetter

  • Lin J

  • Alaska Ranger

  • Galaxy

  • Katmai

  • Nesika

  • Aleutian Enterprise

  • Amber Dawn

  • Freya

  • Pacific Apollo

Don't trust the owner's lawyers or insurance claims adjusters to be fair with you. They are working with the insurance companies to pay as little as possible on your claim. If you are the wife, child, father, mother, or dependent relative of a fisherman lost in a fishing vessel or crab boat sinking, having a lawyer on your side with experience in maritime wrongful death claims and crab boat sinkings just makes good sense.
