Maritime Accidents are Different

If you never worked on the water or aboard a ship, you may not realize that the laws governing maritime accidents differ greatly from land accidents.

Whether the accident took place in international or local waters, or workers sustained injuries at Pennsylvania and New Jersey shipping terminals and ports, our firm offers skilled legal guidance to our clients. Our extensive knowledge regarding the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, and general maritime law gives us the power to handle the toughest cases.
