Protecting the Rights of Tug and Barge Workers
While Puget Sound and the Inland Passage provide aesthetic beauty, the tugboats and barges that travel those waterways are often the scene of serious and tragic injuries and deaths. At Kraft Palmer Davies, PLLC, in Seattle, Washington, our lawyers have worked for decades to protect injured tug workers and their families. We are experienced in maritime-related injury claims and work hard on behalf of the equally hard-working tug and barge employees.
The practice of maritime and admiralty law is complex. It requires an attorney with an in-depth knowledge of the Jones Act and other aspects of the law. That is what we provide our clients. Contact us at 206-624-8844 or toll free at 800-448-8008 for aggressive representation.
Vital and High-Risk Services of Tug and Barge Workers
Tug workers serve a vital role on the waters of the Pacific Rim. They guide ships to and from busy ports, transport products, provide protection from oil spills, and support construction projects. However, many times their service comes at a high cost if they are forced to endure unsafe vessel conditions. If you are a tug or barge worker and have suffered an on-the-job injury, we will strive to hold the vessel's owner accountable.
Seasoned Tug and Barge Injury Attorneys
The Jones Act, not state workers' compensation laws, governs compensation for tug and barge injuries on navigable waters of the United States. While that increases the complexity of these types of personal injury cases, the admiralty and maritime law attorneys at Kraft Palmer Davies, PLLC, have decades of experience in handling these claims and are ready to help.
