Imagine being a dock worker and dealing with dangerous conditions at your workplace that threaten your safety. Or what if you worked on a cruise ship and the cruise ship operator knowingly allowed the ship to go out on the sea in dangerous shape. How about oil rig workers? What if the equipment that they work with on a daily basis fails, causing them severe injuries? And what about recreational boaters who take their boats, jet skis and yachts out on the sea? What if they get into an accident and a family friend or colleague suffers due to their negligent operation of the vehicle?
All of these circumstances could fall under the legal realm of admiralty and maritime law. People can suffer career-ending injuries at sea, and others can have their lives changed forever due to the severity of their injury. Innocent people can drown or suffer catastrophic or fatal injuries in a boat accident due to unseaworthy vessels.
When terrible things happen at sea and the lives of innocent people hang in the balance, these victims need to consult with an attorney with experience in the realm of admiralty and maritime law.
