Pursuing Compensation After A Maritime Accident

Few on the mainland appreciate the true potential peril of the sea. Throughout the Puget Sound area of Washington, and in Seattle, commercial fishing remains a highly dangerous occupation. Boats sail up the coast to Alaska in pursuit of a marketable catch. It is a tough job. Injuries at sea can be very serious and at times, even involve drowning and wrongful death.

I understand the possibility of serious injury a client can face on the job as a result of the line of work and even negligence of a maritime employer or fellow seaman. At Fong Law, I provide skillful representation for clients faced with a variety of personal injury issues and Jones Act cases, including maritime fishing incidents. Give me a call at 360-329-4869 or 866-504-2203 to discuss your specific case in a free consultation. I serve clients throughout the Puget Sound area.

As an attorney devoted to upholding the rights of clients injured on the job, I am confident in my ability to deal with insurance companies and take on large corporations. While their resources are vast, my passion is unyielding.
