Juneau is extremely important to the maritime industry, especially fishing and seining, salmon tending and small to medium size fishery. Additionally, many important records relating to fishing claims, accidents and injuries are kept in Juneau, as are important Coast Guard records.
We have many clients based in, around and about Juneau. Also, we often access to records kept in Juneau, especially Alaska Workers Compensation claim records for fishermen, and second injury fund records. Sometimes, injuries at sea or maritime related injuries in fishing are processed as Alaska Workers Compensation claims through Juneau, when they are more appropriately handled as Jones Act / general maritime claims. For information on the differences between workers compensation claims and the rights of a person injured at sea or in a maritime situation covered by The Jones Act or general maritime law, see "How Claims Work" at this Web site.
In appropriate circumstances, we will meet with clients in Juneau, and dispatch experts, including marine safety experts, for accident investigation. In appropriate cases, we will also obtain copies of workers compensation records relating to accident or injury if a seaman, or claimant who has rights under The Jones Act or general maritime law, has a previously existing workers compensation file. We will meet with a client at the address listed above, or a client's residence, depending upon the case.
