Maritime Accident in Washington? Speak with a Maritime Lawyer for Free Today

With miles of Pacific Ocean coastline and navigable water access to many of the state’s major cities through the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Salish Sea, Washington is a hub of diverse commercial water activity. From shipping to fishing, maritime workers in Washington have numerous employment opportunities. But, they face numerous risks as well.

At the Willis Law Firm, we represent injured maritime workers and their families in claims under the Jones Act, General Maritime Laws, and other state and federal laws. If you are injured on a cruise ship, cargo ship, fishing boat, gillnetting or seining boat, salmon fishing or longlining boat or any other type of vessel or processing boat, you are entitled to compensation for a maritime injury and we will fight to secure maximum benefits for your losses. Employers and their insurance companies often stand in the way of employees’ claims for compensation. We make sure their tactics don’t prevent our clients from recovering the benefits they deserve.
