Fort Lauderdale Maritime Lawyers
What is Maritime Law?
If you were injured while on a ship at sea, your case falls under maritime law. Maritime law is different than a standard personal injury or worker’s compensation case. You’ll need a Fort Lauderdale maritime lawyer who can navigate the law for you. Our experienced Jones Act attorneys have helped thousands of clients.
Maritime law or Admiralty law is a distinct body of law that governs the following:
- Marine commerce
- Marine navigation
- Shipping of goods
- Transportation of passengers
Why Should you File a Claim?
Maritime cases are different than standard personal injury cases. You’re still entitled, however, to the same types of compensation. We can fight to get you money to pay medical bills, reimburse lost wages or lost property and more. If you were injured by hazardous work conditions, unsafe ship design, pollution, poor construction or any similar type of condition, let us advise you of your legal options.
