Eureka, California is a city with a population of approximately 27,000 citizens, located on the Northern coast of California in Humboldt County. Eureka is one of the largest coastal cities between San Francisco and Portland and has one of the busiest commercial ports along the coast.

Eureka’s economy is closely tied to the Humboldt Bay, the Pacific Ocean, and fishing. Salmon fisheries began along the Eel River in 1851 and Eureka is now home port to more than 100 fishing vessels in two modern marinas which can berth approximately 400 vessels within the city limits, and at least 50 more vessels in Fields Landing. Catches include salmon, tuna, Dungeness crab, and shrimp.

Understanding maritime law in Eureka, California, can be challenging. Whether a person will be eligible to recover lost wages, medical expenses, and other damages after suffering from a severe injury during a maritime job requires a detailed understanding of the governing law, including but not limited to the Jones Act, and the facts surrounding the incident.
