Let us help you NAVIGATE your Maritime Injury claim!


In 2013, the CDC released a study looking into fatal offshore injuries. They noted that someone working in the offshore oil and gas industry is 7 times more likely to die than other workers. As officially the most dangerous industry in the country, it is no surprise that maritime workers find themselves suffering from devastating, even life-altering injuries.

Maritime law, which is also referred to as admiralty law, is a body of law that governs activities the happen on the water. Maritime law covers a variety of categories such as parameters of legal job duties, marine shipping, cargo damage, stipulations of maritime injury claims, and more.

Common Causes of Maritime Injury Accidents:

  • Fires
  • Explosions
  • Incidents that occur on cruise ships
