What are my rights if I am injured on a commercial fishing vessel?
A: If you are hurt or injured on a commercial fishing vessel, you have very specific rights. That includes a right to sue your employer under the Jones Act which is a federal statute or bring a claim for unseaworthiness against the owner or operator of the vessel.
