Millions Recovered for Injured Commercial Fishermen and Seamen

Maritime lawyer James Beard has been representing injured crewmen and commercial fishermen for over 30 years. Its practice emphasizes commercial fishing accident injuries and fishing vessel sinkings in Alaska, Washington and Oregon. If you have been injured through negligence, you have a right to compensation under the Jones Act. Let Beard and his partners at Trueb & Beard, LLC get you the fair compensation for your injuries you are entitled to under Federal maritime law. Beard has recovered millions of dollars in compensation for their clients located throughout the country.

A moment of negligence can cause an injury to a crewman that impacts him and his family for the rest of their lives. Beard can protect your rights to compensation and prevent the big insurance companies and maritime employers from taking advantage of you. As soon as you are injured, the vessel owner, your employer, and their insurance company begin work to minimize the amount of compensation they have to pay you as a result of your injuries.
