Consult with our Admiralty Law Attorneys

When accidents and injuries to people and property take place in our harbors, oceans, and rivers, they are covered by a distinct body of laws called Admiralty law.
At Yarborough Applegate, we have handled admiralty and maritime cases for both individuals and businesses. Whether you have been injured while working on a ship or other vessel, as a passenger on a cruise line, or you have sustained property damage to your vessel or other property as a result of the negligence of another recreational boater or commercial shipping or cruise line, we can investigate your claim and pursue a remedy for your loss. Some of the areas which fall under the umbrella of maritime or admiralty law are listed here:
  • Recreational boating accidents & injuries
  • Seamen Injuries covered by the Jones Act
  • Maintenance and Cure
  • Maritime and Longshore and Harbor Workers' Act Claims
  • Cruise Ship Accidents
  • Oil Pollution Act Claims
  • Death on the High Seas Act
  • Unseaworthiness claims
