The International Maritime Organization

Maritime law is a complex and nuanced body of law that governs international commerce, navigation, and safety at sea. Treaties and conventions established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) set the global standards for maritime operations. 

These standards cover everything from vessel construction and safety equipment to pollution prevention and crew training. Understanding these international regulations is crucial for building a strong case in a maritime injury claim.

What To Look For in a Maritime Injury Attorney

When faced with an offshore accident and its aftermath, selecting the right legal representation is critical. Here are some key factors to consider when choosing a maritime injury attorney:

  • Personal Experience in Offshore Injury Law: Experience is paramount. Look for an attorney with a proven track record of handling offshore accident cases specifically. In-depth knowledge of the Jones Act, maritime negligence law, and relevant international regulations is essential.
  • Demonstrated Knowledge of Maritime Law: Maritime law is a specialized field. Your attorney should possess a deep understanding of the legal landscape governing offshore accidents.
  • Proven Track Record of Success: Look for an attorney with a history of securing successful outcomes for clients in similar cases. This demonstrates their ability to effectively negotiate with insurance companies and, if necessary, win in court.
  • Strong Communication Skills: Clear and consistent communication is vital. Your attorney should be able to explain complex legal concepts in a way you understand and keep you informed throughout the legal process.
  • Relentless Advocacy: You deserve an attorney who is a fierce advocate for your rights. Someone who will fight tirelessly to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.

How A Jones Act Attorney Can Help Your Injury Claim

The Jones Act is a crucial piece of legislation that protects the rights of injured maritime workers. If you qualify as a seaman under the Jones Act and your injury was caused by negligence on the part of your employer, vessel owner, or a fellow crew member, you are entitled to significant compensation for your damages. This can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of earning capacity

Don't settle for anything less than the compensation you deserve.
