Law firms often have a specialty. At Mariner Law, PLLC that specialty is assisting mariners who were injured on the water. Never insurance companies. Never vessel owners. Maritime law applies to injuries that occur on the navigable waters of the United States or aboard U.S.-flagged vessels elsewhere in the world. But most injuries at sea are associated with a vessel. That means that anyone injured on a vessel should contact a maritime lawyer to properly assess their rights and remedies under the law.
Just a few examples of Mariner Law, PLLC clients include:
Barge Workers / Tankermen
Dock and Shipyard Workers
This list is not exhaustive. There are too many types of mariners on the rivers, lakes, bays, and oceans of the world to address on one website. If you were hurt on or near the water, call a maritime lawyer to discuss your options.
Mariner Law, PLLC is proud to have a national presence and serve clients all over the country. It is common for mariners to spend time serving vessels far from their actual homes. That means that the work of a maritime attorney can span several states in a single case. Maritime law firms can handle cases in almost any jurisdiction using the assistance of a local attorney network. However, Mariner Law, PLLC is proud to be licensed and handle cases in Washington, Oregon, Alaska, New York, and Connecticut. The firm also has offices by appointment at:
539 Broadway #412 Tacoma, WA 98402
4949 S. Macadam Ave. Portland, OR 97239
40 Wall Street 27th Floor New York, NY 10005
If you or a loved one were harmed or even killed aboard a vessel, you may be entitled to compensation under maritime law. While specific admiralty laws and benefits apply differently based on the facts, money damages may be available to commercial mariners and leisure boaters alike. Maritime law is special and requires an experienced touch. It's important to contact an offshore lawyer to understand your options. Help may be available.
