I Lost an Arm in a Fishing Boat Accident. What Do I Do?

At Latti & Anderson LLP, we have seen how the physical pain and mental anguish of losing a limb can affect an amputee for the rest of his or her life. Amputees can sometimes have to relearn basic skills and be hindered in their ability to work or enjoy a lifestyle similar to the one they had before their accident.

Our Jones Act attorneys can help you whether you lost your limb due to:

  • Unguarded machinery
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Defective switches
  • Lack of safety training
  • Poorly maintained equipment

We know what it takes to uncover and prove who was at fault for your amputation accident, and we have the skills and resources to get you the justice you deserve and the compensation you need to get your life back on track.


Latti & Anderson has a history of representing injured fisherman and merchant seaman who have had injury to their arm, including amputation.  Latti & Anderson represented a young merchant seaman whose four fingers were amputated when his hand was dragged into a capstan.  In that case, liability focused on the failure to properly train the crew member.  Damages included the pain and suffering, mental anguish and physical disfigurement the Plaintiff underwent.  Damages also included the costs for a new prosthesis over his life time.  Case settled for $1.4 million.
