What is Maritime Law?

Maritime law is the governing of matters involving ships, insurance claims, shipping, and civil matters that occur at sea, in fresh waters or along the coastline of the U.S. or in open waters of the Gulf of Mexico. This type of law also governs matters involving harbors, ports, and the high seas. This includes:

  • Accidents that occur on the water such as boating accidents
  • Aircraft accidents that take place over the U.S. open waters
  • International water injuries
  • Cruise ship injury cases
  • Dock or pier accidents that cause injuries
  • Any commercial maritime injury involving passengers aboard a vessel

When To File a Claim

If you were involved in a maritime law accident, you should consult with our maritime legal attorneys immediately to see if you may be able to recover damages. Keep in mind there is a statute of limitations in effect so you don’t want to wait.

Therefore, it is important to file your claim as soon as you can to begin building a case against the party at fault. Those involved in the Maritime Industry like longshore workers, who load and unload cargo ships, can file a claim to recover damages if injured on the job. Common personal injury claims filed by crew members include:

  • Hazardous ship conditions
  • Defective design
  • Pollution
  • Loss of vessel resulting from poor construction
  • Sunken vessels due to leaking oil
