Maritime and Admiralty Law attorneys at the Law Offices of Alex R. Hernandez Jr. represent seamen dock workers, oil rig workers, and harbor workers who get injured while doing their job. Maritime law is complex and you will benefit from the services of an experienced attorney. The law covers the Jones Act, LHWCA, and DOHSA.
Admiralty law, also called maritime law, is a combination of U.S. and international law that covers all contracts, torts, injuries or offenses that take place on navigable waters. Admiralty law traditionally focused on oceanic issues, but it has expanded to cover any public body of water, including lakes and rivers.

Early investigation into the event is often the difference between a quick and just settlement and a long-drawn court procedure. Contact us if you have experienced an injury while doing your job.
