Maritime Law

Areas Of Practice

Admiralty law, also known as maritime law, is a law that governs what happens when people do business and get hurt at sea or while working in a maritime capacity. Maritime and admiralty law is a very specialized area of law, and only attorneys who focus their practice on maritime law truly understand it. When a person suffers a personal injury on land, such as in a car accident or a slip and fall accident at a store, the victim should seek legal counsel from a qualified personal injury attorney. When a person works at sea, such as a merchant seaman or a commercial fisherman, or plays at sea, such as a recreational boater or a passenger on a cruise ship or a whale watch, the laws are different. Maritime injury laws are entirely separate and distinct from the laws that cover injuries on land.
