Maritime Injuries vs. Injuries That Occur on Land

The marine environment is different from the environment on land. Just as work or recreation in the marine environment requires specialized knowledge, the legal landscape is different for an attorney handling a maritime case.

General practicing injury attorneys often do not have the comprehensive knowledge or expertise to ideally work toward compensation in this area of law. Maritime or marine law involves complicated and unique laws that typical lawyers are either unfamiliar with or rarely, if ever, work on. To make matters even more complex, many maritime cases are tried in federal court while many non-maritime cases are usually tried in state court.

For nearly half a century, we have been obtaining millions in compensation for injured workers in maritime law cases, and we are ready to do the same for you if you or a loved one has sustained an admiralty injury.
