WHAT IS MARITIME LAW?

Maritime law governs events and operations involving ships, shipping, insurance claims, and civil matters occurring on open water. Approximately 95% of cargo is imported to the United States through seaports, so maritime law affects businesses and employees around the world directly or indirectly. Maritime law is the term used to describe the legal jurisdiction of the United States over certain waters. This includes ports, harbors, rivers, bays, seas, oceans, and any other bodies of water that are connected directly or indirectly with interstate commercial activity.

Maritime law is applied when an employee is injured at sea. This law is different from personal injury and worker’s compensation laws that apply to land-based accidents. Thus, it is vital that you contact a maritime injury lawyer if you have been involved in an accident on the water. Schechter, Shaffer & Harris, L.L.P. is your go-to maritime law firm.

Common Personal injury claims filed by crew members include:

  • Broken bones in the hand, arm, foot, or leg
  • Back injury
  • Torn muscles
  • Cuts from machinery or equipment
  • Burns
  • Neck injuries

No matter what type of injury you have suffered, our experienced maritime accident and Jones Act law firm is here to help. Contact us today if you want to file a claim or need help navigating your workers’ compensation process.

WHAT IS THE MOST FINANCIAL COMPENSATION I CAN RECOVER

The financial compensation you can recover for a maritime injury is largely dependent on several factors including your current medical bills, your life expectancy, the likely permanency of your injuries, and any disabilities you have incurred.
