Every day serious accidents occur at sea and on other bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, and canals. These injuries can be severe and may alter the victim’s life forever. Workers and other individuals who suffer injuries in a maritime accident may be able to seek recovery under a number of different laws and legal theories. These laws can be confusing and it is often difficult to determine which laws apply to your case. If you have been injured in a maritime accident, it is important to discuss your situation with a lawyer who has specific experience handling maritime injury claims.
