Fishing Boat Accident Lawyers

Advocating for Louisiana Fishermen Since 1993

Nowhere is the danger and thanklessness of commercial fishing more clear than in the case of maritime accidents. Maritime workers who suffer serious physical injuries face an uphill battle. If you have suffered an injury on a fishing boat, your employer, the ship owners and the insurance company agents are not going to rush to help you. You should not try to fight this battle on your own. You need experienced, aggressive legal representation.

At Murphy Law Firm, LLC, we never give up fighting for you. We understand the importance of obtaining full and fair compensation, and we have the experience to know how to maximize the compensation available to you. Our fishing boat accident lawyers are committed to helping you.

On Your Side

Many people who suffer serious injuries working on a fishing boat feel like there is no one who has their interests in mind, no one helping them. If you have been hurt on a fishing boat, or lost someone you love to a wrongful death on a fishing boat, we want you to know that you are not alone. Depending on the facts of the case and your status, our maritime attorneys can bring a variety of maritime claims on your behalf, including:

  • Jones Act claims – allowing injured seamen to bring civil actions against maritime employers
  • Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act claims – like workers’ compensation on the water, providing remedies for injured maritime workers
  • Third-party liability claims – a civil action against the third party that was in some way responsible for the accident – like the manufacturer of faulty maritime equipment or a negligent boater
  • Wrongful death – compensation for the families of commercial fishermen who died in work-related accidents

“We never stop fighting for you. Most people feel abandoned after a fishing boat accident, as if no one is there for them. I am a family man myself, so I know how important it is to get you the compensation you need to be able to continue providing for your family after suffering serious fishing boat accident injuries. At Murphy Law Firm, LLC, we are on your side.” ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy
