Boating & Maritime Accidents
Recreational boating and other water activities such as riding a Jet Ski or fishing can be so exhilarating that people forget they can be dangerous too. Skiers get run over by propellers, passengers fall overboard, seamen get injured by defective equipment. Boats capsize and collide, causing fires and explosions. The scenarios that can lead to personal injury are endless.
The legal framework for injuries suffered at sea or in navigable waters can be entirely different from injuries on land. Having an experienced personal injury attorney who understands maritime law can be a decisive factor for a compensation claim.

Under the Jones Act, seamen injured at work enjoy a number of benefits and can obtain compensation under specific claims for damages and expenses known as maintenance and cure.
