Maritime attorneys are lawyers who specifically practice an area of the law chiefly known as 'maritime law'. Maritime law applies to those cases involving injuries or accidents occurring on the waterways of the United States, such as rivers and lakes, in the Gulf of Mexico, or at sea. Because maritime law is different from other personal injury law, it is important to seek out maritime attorneys who are trained and experienced in the complex rules and laws that are applicable to maritime law. Qualified maritime attorneys will be able to handle claims based on the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, claims based on the Death on the High Seas Act, as well as claims based on 'general maritime law', and the Jones Act. Experienced maritime attorneys will have access to local experts who are familiar with marine safety, with former boat captains and pilots, former offshore crane operators, and folks in other specialized maritime areas who have worked for years in the oil and gas and offshore industries. Our maritime attorneys will utilize these experts while building your case. The maritime attorneys at Gordon, Elias & Seely, L.L.P have the knowledge and experience needed to protect your rights.
