    Have you been injured at sea?

    Do you have a cargo or carrier issue relating to maritime shipping?

    Admiralty / maritime law covers issues, activities and vessels on navigable waterways such as oceans, rivers and inland waterways.

    Maritime law reflects federal law which covers both shipping commerce spanning international oceans as well as recreational vessels on much smaller bodies of water.

    Admiralty law helps businesses resolve commerce issues such as lost cargo, transactions and also salvage award disputes.

    Piracy or hijacking at sea cases are also covered by maritime law.

    Admiralty law and the Jones Act in particular lay out provisions for sailors injured at sea which are different than personal injury cases on land and specifically define who qualifies as “seamen".
