When an accident occurs on a maritime vessel – whether it’s a personal watercraft, fishing boat or a cruise ship – and a crewmember, fisherman or passenger is injured or killed, the rules of the road are different. In fact there are many different regulations and stipulations involved in maritime litigation. At CaseyGerry we understand this distinct set of laws and rules and know how to navigate them for clients who have suffered loss or injury as a result of a boating accident.
Over our 70 years in business, we have handled a wide range of maritime litigation cases – from seeking justice for individuals working aboard fishing boats to representing those who were anticipating a pleasure sail. Each and every case is different. The injury could have been caused by unsafe conditions on deck, malfunctioning equipment, negligence or a collision. In the end, our goals are the same: to find a resolution which meets our clients’ long-term needs.
Our experienced maritime law attorneys will investigate each case thoroughly, using their knowledge of the laws of the sea and the longshore environment. Taking into account potential wrongdoing, equipment failure and operator responsibility, CaseyGerry believes our clients who have suffered injury and loss of property or life in a maritime environment deserve the best legal service available – along with compassion and understanding.
Our maritime attorneys have successfully handled the gamut of serious personal injury and maritime wrongful death cases – navigated the complexities of maritime law in both state and federal courts. We understand how detailed and intricate maritime law is, and over the years have used our knowledge to the best interests of our clients.
If you or a family member has been injured at sea, please contact CaseyGerry.
