Compensation for Injuries in Factory Trawler Fishing Accidents - Seattle, Washington Lawyers
Every year, more than 10,000 fish processors work in the Bering Sea, many aboard floating fish processing ships and factory trawlers where serious accidents and workplace injuries are common.
Fish processors are often unskilled and inadequately trained laborers who have never worked in the industry before, lured by advertisements promising the ability to earn a large income in a few short months.
The Harsh Truth
The truth is that fish processors are often exposed to long hours, harsh working conditions and dangerous and defective equipment aboard rocking and rolling factory trawlers in the Bering Sea, Gulf of Alaska and Pacific Ocean. Long hours of work and heavy weather increase the odds of an injury accident. Crewmen working for even the best fishing companies sometime suffer serious and permanent injuries.
