Workers’ Compensation for Commercial Fishermen
Commercial fishermen are exposed to a variety of dangers on a daily basis. Under federal maritime law and the Jones Act, commercial fishermen are protected if they are injured on the job. Often, fishermen are entitled to full compensation including medical expenses, lost wages, and future wages. In most cases, you’re also entitled to compensation for damage to your sea vessel.
