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.

Description: I was shocked after getting hit from behind by another car. Made sure that my wife was okay. When I walked through the door, didn’t know what to expect. Then once walked in, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that what I had anticipated was exactly the opposite of what it really was. Everybody here was very kind and very knowledgeable and willing to listen to what happened. I didn’t think I’d get anything for the car accident, and I was shocked to learn that I got a great settlement. My lawyers were awesome. If I ever find myself in that situation again, I’d be right back here.
