Philadelphia Maritime Injury Attorneys – Pennsylvania

If you were injured while working on a ship, you could receive compensation under maritime admiralty law. Our Philadelphia maritime lawyers will work hard to guide you through this process and ensure that you get the justice that you deserve. From airplane crashes to ferry accidents, we handle a wide range of maritime injuries and work tirelessly to help our clients move forward with their lives.

Before you make any decisions about your case, consulting with an experienced Philadelphia maritime injury lawyer is the best way to ensure that your rights are protected. Our legal team will review all aspects of your case and provide you with the information and guidance that you need to choose the right course of action for you and your family.

WHAT IS MARITIME LAW?

A maritime lawyer practices law as it pertains to the navigable waters in the United States, as well as the open water in places like the Gulf of Mexico and the coastal lines of the U.S. Maritime law involves vessels, shipping, insurance claims, and civil matters out on the open waters. It is a highly specialized area of law that covers any number of areas, including personal injury claims.

If you or a loved one were injured on the water in Philadelphia, our team will be able to provide you with dedicated guidance and representation during this difficult time. We can help guide you through the process so that you understand your rights and choose the best course of action for you. Contact Schechter Shaffer & Harris, LLP today to schedule an initial case review with our maritime accident attorneys.

WHAT IS THE JONES ACT?

Maritime attorneys often deal with the Jones Act, which provides seamen with a number of legal protections. The Jones Act allows a maritime lawyer to bring appropriate legal action on the behalf of an injured seaman against a shipowner, a ship captain, or other crew members after an accident. The Jones Act can be difficult to interpret, as it is often unclear who qualifies as a seaman and what is considered a sea vessel under this law. That’s why you need an experienced maritime injury attorney in Philadelphia who understands maritime admiralty law inside and out.

CAN A MARITIME LAWYER HELP ME GET THE MOST COMPENSATION FOR MY INJURIES?

If you or a loved one was hurt in a maritime accident, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries under the Jones Act. Our Philadelphia maritime injury attorneys can help you every step of the way so that you can obtain the justice you deserve. We fight tirelessly to maximize the amount of compensation that you receive for your injuries, and we always work to ensure that the responsible parties are held accountable.

WHEN SHOULD I FILE A CLAIM?

Your typical longshoreman lawyer or personal injury attorney probably doesn’t know all of the fine points of maritime law. However, the accomplished Philadelphia maritime attorneys of Schechter, Shaffer & Harris, L.L.P. have years of experience with these matters. We have found that maritime injuries often result from:

  • Hazardous ship conditions
  • Defective ship design

  • Loss of vessel due to poor construction
  • Pollution

At Schechter, Shaffer & Harris, L.L.P., our mission is to help injured seamen obtain the just compensation that they deserve under the Jones Act and related maritime laws. This compensation will cover expenses and losses that resulted from the accident, including medical bills, loss of wages, and pain and suffering.
