Maritime Personal Injury
The Death on the High Seas Act of 1920 allows a surviving spouse, parent or child to seek financial compensation following the death of a loved one, if the death was caused by the negligence of a sea or air carrier, and occurred more than three nautical miles away from U.S. shores.
When cruise ship accidents and serious or fatal injuries occur, assaults on cruise ships or painful slips and falls on recreational vessels, the expertise and experience of a skillful maritime legal team is essential to the pursuit of justice.
