Jacksonville Maritime Lawyers
About 95% of cargo is imported to the United States through seaports. Therefore,
maritime law effects thousands of businesses and workers around the world directly or
indirectly. The law also governs workers who are injured at sea and handles:
- Civil matters
- Insurance claims
Why a Maritime Lawyer?
This law is different from personal injury and workers’ compensation. An injured worker
can file claims under the Longshore and Harbormen’s Act or the Jones Act just depending
on their employment status. These type of cases can get very tricky, so it is in your best
interest to contact a maritime attorney if you or a loved one have been injured at sea.
Schechter, McElwee, Shaffer & Harris, L.L.P are your go to maritime attorneys.

The statute of limitation limits the amount of time a worker has to pursue legal action
against another party. Do not overlook your injuries and let time past, because after the
time limit passes you forfeit your rights to pursue legal action. Since this law varies per
state, contact our legal team so we can determine how much time you have to pursue
legal action. We can answer any other legal questions that you may have as well as gather
evidence to build your case and help you get a settlement. A settlement is used to assist
you with any damages that you may have suffered after your accident like medical bills
or loss wages.
