Maritime Defective Products

Alaska Maritime Products Liability Lawyers

Beard Stacey & Jacobsen, LLP

If you were injured aboard ship by a defective product or an unreasonably dangerous piece of equipment, you may be able to get compensation for your injuries under general maritime law principles or under the Jones Act. A defective piece of equipment may also cause a vessel to be unseaworthy.

Beard Stacey & Jacobsen, LLP is one of Alaska's leading maritime and admiralty personal injury law firms. We have handled thousands of maritime injury claims, recovering millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for injured seamen and their families in Alaska and across the Bering Sea.

For nearly 25 years we've been fighting for Alaska's commercial fisherman, seamen, tug boat workers, harbor workers and longshoremen. Call toll free: 1-866-974-9633 to speak directly with an experienced maritime injury attorney.

The accident may not have been your fault

Many of our past cases, several of which resulted in settlements of a million dollars or more, involved dangerous machinery or defects in a ship's equipment. These flaws could include design defects, failure to warn of a hazard, and failure to provide safeguards on dangerous machines.

Seamen and other maritime workers often thought the accident was their fault, but after they talked with an attorney at Beard Stacey & Jacobsen, LLP, we saw how a product safety-related hazard put them at risk. In serious injury cases we work with design and engineering experts throughout the U.S. to identify design flaws and engineering or manufacturing defects that make ship equipment and machinery dangerous to those using it.

If you suffered a catastrophic injury at sea, notify the ship's owners/operators and your employers right away to give them notice of your claim. Ask them to save the equipment and preserve other evidence relating to your defective or dangerous product claim.

Money damages for personal injuries

If you have been injured as a result of a dangerous product or defective piece of ship equipment, contact an experienced maritime lawyer at Beard Stacey & Jacobsen LLP, for advice. Call 1-877-DECKLAW (1-866-974-9633). We offer a free, confidential consultation for maritime injury cases.
