Deadly F/V SCANDIES ROSE Sinking Lawsuit to Settle Out of Court

The owners of F/V SCANDIES ROSE report that they have resolved lawsuits with two surviving crewmembers and the families of four mariners who died during the December 2019 incident.  The crab fishing vessel was managed out of Washington State and sank near Sutwik Island, Alaska.  The case reportedly settled out of court for more than $9 million.

A Coast Guard Marine Board of Investigation was launched earlier in 2020 but has been delayed due to COVID-19.  Public hearings are expected to take place in Seattle for a two-week period beginning Feb. 22, 2020.

This incident demonstrates the dangers faced by commercial fishermen who work aboard fishing vessels in Alaska.  Anderson Carey Williams & Neidzwski, PLLC has represented commercial fishermen throughout the pacific northwest for over forty years.  The firm’s admiralty lawyers have a unique understanding of the perils faced by these mariners.
