Maritime law refers to any circumstances or incidents which occur on U.S. waters, U.S. coastline, and along the Gulf of Mexico. This includes a wide range of areas, including civil matters, accidents, ships, and shipping. This area of law is very different than workers' compensation and personal injury law, which relates to accidents on land. Our firm can handle cases which pertain to the Jones Act and maritime law.
