If you are a member of the crew of a vessel involved in an explosion or fire and sustained injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your injury. Under the Jones Act and general maritime law, injured seamen and vessel crews may assert a claim against their employer for injuries caused by an unsafe condition on the vessel or their employer’s negligence. General maritime law allows seamen to collect compensation for injuries caused by defective or unsafe equipment. Explosions, vessel fires, and ammonia leaks usually give rise to compensation claims. Compensation may include damages for pain, disability, loss of enjoyment of life, lost wages, economic losses, past and future medical expenses, cost of monitoring the injury over a lifetime, and other damages depending on the specific facts of your case.

Many factory trawlers and other fishing vessels have large refrigeration systems to store fish product while at sea. When these systems leak ammonia into the vessel, it can cause serious injuries to the crew, including damage to the lungs, industrial asthma, or other serious pulmonary conditions. If you were the member of a crew exposed to an ammonia leak, it is important you obtain a full evaluation from a qualified pulmonologist. You have the right to choose your own doctor and should avoid consulting with doctors recommended by the fishing company. Our experienced maritime injury lawyers have handled a variety of ammonia and other gas exposure cases for injured maritime workers, including a verdict in excess of $1 million for a gas exposure case.
