Just as is the case with incidents arising on dry land, there are special and specific laws governing accidents, injuries, and mishaps that occur on the high seas. Maritime and admiralty laws govern boating accidents, cruise ship injuries, and any other mishap that might occur on the ocean. In the event that something does happen, you will need a lawyer experienced in the practice of maritime law to ensure that your rights are protected.
Wagner McLaughlin Is The Florida Admiralty Law Attorney You Need
Even if you were injured through working on a sea vessel, special admiralty laws may apply to your situation and affect how and when you should proceed. If you don’t act quickly, you may lose the right to be adequately compensated for your injuries.
With decades of experience in this area, Wagner McLaughlin is a top-rated Florida maritime injury law firm with the judgment and experience to help you decide on the best course of action. While the attorneys of Wagner McLaughlin can’t make any guarantees (no attorney can!), they do offer a free consultation to go over your details and suggest your best course of action.
In addition to covering boating accidents and cruise ship accidents, the firm also handles workplace accidents and incidents arising from long shore and harbor work.
It’s especially important to ensure that you hire a lawyer with considerable knowledge of and experience with maritime law, because, very often, such cases involve more than local or state laws.
