States We Serve
If you have been injured in a water-related accident because of negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. We provide assistance to victims of many types of accidents in both commercial and recreational situations. Whether you are out on the open seas or working on river barges, this type of work is inherently dangerous, made even more so if you are not provided with quality equipment and adequate training. Every seaman has the right to safe working conditions, and we work hard to ensure you receive due benefits if you have not been provided with this kind of environment.
We serve clients in the following states:
- New Jersey
- New York
- North Carolina
- South Carolina
From accidents in the Great Lakes to gulf intracoastal waterway accidents to river barge injuries, we offer our experience in maritime law. From the Mississippi River to the Ohio River to the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway, we provide help for anyone who has been injured in a river accident. Whether the person works on a tug boat, a shipyard or in a marine terminal, we can provide legal counsel if they have been injured in the workplace.
Work on a ship or boat is a dangerous job, often made even riskier by lack of training, faulty equipment and unsafe work practices. When someone suffers an injury, due to someone else’s fault, they deserve to be compensated for their medical expenses and lost wages.
If you have suffered such an injury while performing your job, you need a maritime attorney who understands The Jones Act and other maritime laws which protect you. If you’re a family member of a person who died in a workplace accident, you may be covered under the Death on the High Seas Act. Contact us today and let us fight for your rights.
