Maritime and Admiralty Injuries
Maritime personal injury law covers injuries to workers aboard ships, barges, tugs and most other seagoing vessels as well as crewmen, longshoremen and boaters. It also includes passengers aboard pleasure craft, ferries and cruise ships.
Maritime law, sometimes referred to as admiralty law, is unique because it often requires the application of uniform federal maritime law rather than the laws of the state where the incident occurred. Moreover, many cruise ship passenger tickets have shortened time periods for you to bring a claim, require a written notice of claim in advance and preselect the court in which you must bring the claim.
