Maritime Accident Attorneys

Florida is almost completely surrounded by water, so it’s not hard to deduce that maritime accidents, or accidents involving boats or boating laws, are common in this state. Maritime accident lawyers are in high demand here. There are more recreational boats and yachts registered in Florida than in the other 49 states combined. Florida also boasts the most cargo tonnage and cruise ship passenger volume of all the states. With so many people enjoying the beautiful waters off the Florida coast, accidents are bound to happen. That’s when you need to contact a maritime accident attorney.

There are very specialized laws, limitations, and statutes, which apply to maritime accidents and admiralty transactions or casualties. The laws of the land and the laws of the sea can have very different interpretations. This makes it imperative to seek the council of a maritime accident lawyer who can correctly interpret each individual situation and apply the proper remedy, defense, or claim as required.
