Injury at Sea is representing crew members from the sinking of the F/V Laura after the Coast Guard rescued the crewmen from a survival raft. Their fishing vessel the Laura had run aground was taking on water and they were forced to abandon ship.
Fatigue may have been a contributing factor. Applicable maritime law accepts, while a crew member may have caused or contributed to the accident, nonetheless the employer boat-owner may be held liable if fatigue/over work was part of the cause.
Injury at Sea is dedicated to ensuring justice for mariners, and our ongoing investigations continue with the intention of discovering the facts of the case and ensuring compensation for fishermen and all mariners where it is due.
