Commercial Fishing Boat Injury Lawyer - Jones Act Settlement

The Jones Act lawyers at Zehl & Associates are pleased to announce a $6.7 Million Settlement in an offshore back injury case.

Our client, a 52 year-old commercial fisherman, suffered serious neck and back injuries in March of 2015 when his boat capsized in rough seas due to the negligence of his Captain.

After taking depositions and hiring experts in the case, the Defendant’s insurance company offered to mediate–only to disappoint with an offer that would not meet the client’s future needs given the extent of his injuries.

Just a month later, as trial approached, the Defendant’s insurance company reestablished contact and we were able to reach this $6.7 Million settlement, which we believe is the largest in the Defendant’s company history.

Needless to say, the client is satisfied knowing that, even though he will likely never be able to work again due to the accident and his injuries, his future and that of his family is financially secure.
