Maritime Personal Injury Lawyer
Admiralty and maritime law is a highly specialized area of law, and you need a maritime attorney to represent you with your claim. Sometimes, you may well have been unaware that maritime law governs your claim. If, however, you or a loved one suffered an accident or injury while traveling at sea or working on the waterfront as any one of the following then you should contact Conlogue Law LLP for your claim below:
- Jones act seaman
- Blue water seaman
- Ship repairman
- Dock worker
- Cruise ship passenger
- Yacht passenger
- Ferry passenger
- Commercial fisherman
- Crew member
- Merchant marine
- Offshore oil rig worker
- Harbor worker
- Longshore harbor worker
- Tugboat worker
- Port worker
Generally, maritime law also governs accidents occurring on ocean navigable, coastal, and inland waterways, including injuries aboard cruise ships, tugs, barges, sea-going vessels, yachts, ferries, oil rigs, riverboats, and fishing boats. The Conlogue Law LLP is the maritime lawyer that you need to best represent you.
Navigable waters means waterways that have direct or indirect access to the ocean versus a land locked lake. In certain instances even an airboat accident in the everglades may be controlled by maritime law. “Admiralty and maritime Law” is principally made up of Federal Statues, International Treaties and federal common law, otherwise known as “general maritime law”. In certain instances, courts deciding a case based upon maritime law may even “borrow” state law to the extent it is not inconsistent with well-established principles of maritime law. A maritime practitioner will one day be in state court arguing a federal statute and the next be in federal court citing to an international maritime treaty.
Hiring a law firm that specializes in maritime and admiralty law, which governs your claim, will give you a significant advantage and a better outcome over hiring a general personal injury firm. The Conlogue Law LLP was formed based upon the principle that clients in need of legal maritime expertise are best protected and served by attorneys who specialize in and have dedicated their professional lives to maritime law. If your claim concerns admiralty and maritime law in the States of California or Hawaii, then Conlogue Law LLP is here to help. Your selection of the Conlogue Law LLP to represent your interests may well be the most important factor to maximize the financial resolution to your maritime claim.
