WHAT IS MARITIME LAW?

Maritime law includes all commercial and private transportation of goods or passengers by sea. Also known as admiralty law, it governs all matters involving the use of ships, shipping goods, insurance claims, and civil problems that happen on the open water. Maritime admiralty law is supported by the Jones Act and the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act (COGSA). Maritime law can be incredibly complex and difficult to deal with without the right legal team on your side.

Our San Diego maritime injury lawyers have a successful track record in maritime law and will be happy to explain how our legal services can cover your unique situation. We have been protecting those injured as a result of maritime accidents for years and are ready to assist you as well. Contact us today so we can answer any questions you may have about the process.

WHAT IS THE JONES ACT?

The Jones Act, formally known as the Merchant Act of 1920, provides seamen with certain rights. This act gives our longshoremen and offshore injury lawyers the ability to take legal action against ship owners, ship captains, and/or other crew members after an accident.

Some common types of injuries reported:

  • Defective ship construction
  • Unsafe work conditions
  • Pollution due to poor construction

Many people work on the oceans every year – from fishermen to sailors – and each group is at risk of accident or injury due to its industrial nature. As a result, maritime law covers a wide range of situations, including:

  • Ships colliding with other ships or objects in the water
  • Divers and underwater workers falling to injury
  • Passengers falling from a cruise ship, ferry boat, or yacht to injury
  • Seamen injured by defective equipment being used on the ship you work for
  • Seamen injured due to a dangerous condition on board a vessel to which they were assigned

Each situation requires careful handling in order for our maritime lawyers to get the job done.  Let us put that experience to work for you today. Schedule your free initial consultation with our law firm today.

WHAT DAMAGES CAN I RECOVER COMPENSATION FOR?

Our San Diego maritime injury lawyers can help you recover damages for your financial losses, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. This compensation is available as a result of someone else’s negligence.

If you were injured at work because of another person’s carelessness, you are entitled to receive fair compensation through a settlement or court case. Our experienced legal team knows how to successfully litigate your claim in order to ensure that you get what you deserve. We have been protecting those who do hard labor on the open water for years, and we are ready to assist you as well.
