Samson Tug and Barge

The maritime attorneys at Seattle-based law firm Stacey & Jacobsen are available to represent injured crewmen in claims against Samson Tug and Barge. Our lawyers handle claims for injured crewmen throughout the Nation, and have lawyers licensed to practice in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon.

If you were injured through negligence, you have claims for compensation under the Jones Act. Damages under the Jones Act may include compensation for past and future lost wages, pain and suffering, medical and nursing expenses, retraining costs, and loss of enjoyment of life. In almost all cases, an injured seaman is entitled to maintenance and cure.

You Have Rights

The injured crewman is entitled to choose his own doctor, and receive reasonable medical treatment until he has reached maximum medical improvement. Preexisting medical conditions that are aggravated aboard a vessel do not, in most cases, bar your right to compensation.

The lawyers at Stacey & Jacobsen focus their practice on representing injured maritime workers. They know how accidents happen at sea and how they could have been prevented. They are available to provide free initial consultations on maritime injury claims. They do not represent Samson Tug and Barge or their insurance carriers. Stacey & Jacobsen is on the side of the injured seaman, and dedicated to getting the injured seaman fair and complete compensation.
