The Alaska coastline and inland waterways are internationally recognized for oil tankers and the commercial fishing vessels crowding ports. Every year, oil tankers, platform workers and commercial vessels the thousands head out to work their boats in some of the most dangerous waters in the world. Alaska coastal waters are home to oil platforms, refinery rigs and harbors that ship millions of barrels of oil and other products to the lower United States and worldwide. And, fishing vessels and fish processing ships abound in Alaska waters.
National Representation for Maritime Injury Claims
If you suffered an injury or lost a loved one in a shipboard or dockside accident while working on a vessel in Alaska coastal or inland waters, you are entitled to seek money damages from the ship owner under rules set forth by the U.S. admiralty Jones Act.
