Maritime / Jones Act / Seaman Injuries

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:
  • 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
  • Boating Accidents & Injuries

Many maritime workers are regularly exposed to dangerous working conditions and maritime law recognizes these dangers and provides strong protections for the people in the industry. If you have suffered an injury, you may be entitled to recover under one or more of the maritime laws. Please contact 843-972-0150 or complete our consultation form. Evening and weekend appointments are available.
