How Our Maritime Attorney Can Help

If you have been injured on a ship or other vessel, we strongly suggest that you consult with an experienced Maritime Attorney before signing any papers, permitting anyone to take your recorded statement, being examined or treated by a doctor recommended by your employer, or permitting your employer to force you to return to work against your doctor’s advice.

If you or a loved one was seriously injured in a maritime accident, it is extremely important that your Maritime Attorney take all steps necessary to maximize the likelihood of recovering adequate monetary compensation for your injuries.

We and our co-counsel zealously represent all of our clients who were seriously injured in maritime accidents. We investigate the facts and circumstances of the maritime accident, and gather evidence needed to prove the cause of the accident. Our diligent and careful investigation, in depth legal analysis, and relentless pretrial discovery are all directed toward establishing the true cause of the accident, and proving that the vessel owner is liable for your injuries.
