Bellingham Maritime IndustryBellingham and Anacortes are significant to the fishing, crabbing and merchant marine maritime industries. We have helped many injured mariners living in Bellingham or Anacortes, who have been injured while working aboard vessels temporarily or permanently moored at Bellingham or Anacortes.

Bellingham is home to a large seining, small to medium long lining, trawling and other related fisheries. We have many clients who, over the years, have been involved on vessels as small as two or three crewmembers, and sometimes involving an injury at sea where the injured person is a member of the family of the boat owner. For example, we recently resolved a case involving a knee injury where the crew consisted of the father (boat owner) and the sole deckhand, his son. Insurance coverage provided a substantial portion of the payment of $40,000 in damages resulting from injury to the son's knee after the son slipped and fell on the vessel deck.

We have also regularly met with potential clients on claims in Bellingham at locations convenient to the injured individual.

Some of our clients in Bellingham are members of a tribe, fishing and/or crabbing under tribal grant of right. At Injury at Sea we are experts in cases where maritime injury occurs.
