Serious Accidents On The High Seas
Attorney Merting is the first lawyer in North Florida to be Board-Certified in Admiralty and Maritime Law by The Florida Bar. He has extensive experience handling complex maritime accidents involving the Jones Act and workers' compensation claims for people injured on oil rigs and other offshore job sites. He also represents those suffering from back and spinal cord injuries as the result of:

- Diving accidents
- Tugboat and barge accidents
- Commercial fishing accidents
Resources To Handle Complex Back And Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries often result in paralysis with many victims suffering from paraplegia or quadriplegia. But not all back injuries need to be "catastrophic" in order to end a career or have other major effects. Lower back injuries can cause radiating pain and numbness that can prevent someone from being able to work or perform routine tasks.
Mr. Merting works closely with neurosurgeons and other medical experts to help define the type of back injury and the extent to which it affects a person's ability to work and function in everyday life. He relies on their expertise and testimony to obtain the proper compensation clients need to move forward after a serious injury.
Mr. Merting personally represents each client — never handing them off to an assistant or paralegal. He firmly believes in giving each client the experienced representation he or she deserves.
