Over 80 Combined Years Of Maritime Law Experience

Million Dollar Results For Injured Seamen, Fishermen And Fish Processors

Experience does matter when it comes to selecting a maritime injury law firm to represent you. Our Maritime lawyers have been representing injured commercial fishermen and seamen for over 35 years. They have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for their injured clients located throughout the United States. They have successfully handled a number of cases that other lawyers thought could not be won.

The partners at Trueb Berne & Beard, LLP, have been obtaining million-dollar results for our clients for a combined 80-plus years. They have sued the biggest fishing companies and towing companies and taken on the largest insurance companies in the world. Our Attorneys have been willing to take on the challenges of big cases involving difficult liability and damage issues. Obtaining a million-dollar settlement requires serious injuries, and it requires hard work and preparation from your lawyer to establish your right to damages.

The firm’s past results demonstrate their experience in handling major maritime injury cases. They can put their success in those cases to work for you whether your case is big or small. Not every case is a million-dollar claim, and our attorneys have successfully represented hundreds of injured seamen and fishermen who have claims ranging from a few thousand dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Obtaining a fair result for an injured fisherman with an injured shoulder or back who is suffering from chronic pain can be far more difficult than obtaining a million-dollar settlement for a catastrophically injured crewman. Our attorneys strives to get a fair result for all of their clients, whether their cases are big or small.
