Admiralty and Maritime Law in Florida is a very unique and specialized field. Lawyers that work in the field have to be proficient in State and Federal laws, rules of evidence and rules of procedure. This is a field in which experience counts. Our Cocoa, FL maritime law firm is here to represent your interests in your time of need. I have been protecting the rights of seafarers and passengers since 1988. I have been Board Certified in Admiralty and Maritime Law by the Florida Bar since 1996. If you or your client have been injured on a vessel you need a lawyer that specializes in Admiralty and Maritime Law.
My staff and I aggressively represent clients who have been injured while working on board a vessel or traveling on board a vessel. Many of our clients have worked on cruise ships, casino ships, shrimp boats, longliners, tugs, freighters, container ships, and yachts. These individuals have needed our assistance with “Jones Act” negligence claims, unseaworthiness claims and maintenance and cure claims.
We have represented numerous passengers injured on cruise ships, casino ships and all types of recreational vessels from runabouts to megayachts. Many of these claims must have a lawsuit filed within one year from the date of the incident. If you or your client were injured on a cruise ship you need to know about the limitations contained within the passenger’s cruise ticket contract. A lawyer that has experience with these types of claims can protect the passenger’s rights and ease the client through the difficult process of obtaining compensation for losses incurred due to someone else’s negligence.
I am available to discuss the rights of anyone that has been injured on board a vessel. My staff and I are committed to providing exceptional personal service to you or your client and will be happy to assist you. Our fees are contingent upon a recovery and there is no charge for an initial consultation.
