So Lucky to be alive, Saved by an angel.
Over the years, we have grown accustomed to asking our clients surviving near death experiences whether they saw "the light" – the brilliant white light some say they see just as they are about to die.
- Bulk Carrier detained: safety violations The 738-foot bulk carrier Kind Seas, was detained by USCG when significant safety violations were found during an inspection in Kalama, Washington,
- Coast Guard JayHawk Rescues 3 JUNEAU, Alaska Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew rescued three mariners after a fire started on board their 82-foot vessel
- Coast Guard terminates 2 voyages for safety Coast Guard crews operating in Rosario Strait and the Strait of Juan de Fuca terminated the voyages of two commercial fishing vessels for safety gear
Settlements Paid in Cash
Sometimes our clients elect to take their settlements in cash. Here, a very experienced crabber/longliner suffered back problems and we resolved his case within a few months, with a cash money settlement well into the six figures. The day of receipt of his settlement he was back under contract, going back to work in the Alaska fishery, with an enormous amount of tax-free cash in his backpack. We helped him find the best medical care, obtained a settlement promptly, got him right back to work once his settlement was final and sent him on his way with money to last for a very very long time. You can’t see the smile on his face in this photo, but we will tell you, he is one very happy camper!
