At the Law Offices of John W. Merting, we have over 40 years of experience with admiralty and maritime legal matters. Given the complexity of admiralty and maritime legal matters, it can only benefit someone entangled in such a predicament to turn to a knowledgeable and experienced advocate of their rights. And at The Law Offices of John W. Merting, we want to help people with their many different admiralty and maritime issues.

Given the scope of this area of law, it is understandable for people to have questions about what we actually cover. The first and possibly most important factor is recreational boat accidents. Many Pensacola residents own boats, and they can sometimes crash or get into legal trouble. We can help you with these issues.

Another common area of admiralty and maritime law revolves around the cruise ship industry. Cruise ships are popular vacation trips, and many families ride Carnival and Royal Caribbean every year. But sometimes, these cruise ships crash or host horrible accidents that could have — and should have — been avoided. We want to hold these cruise ship companies responsible when they leave innocent people injured due to dangerous conditions or horrible accidents.

Last but not least, we stand up for the workers who put themselves on the line on shipyards everyday. These are dangerous places to work, and the safety standards must be met. When they aren’t, the employees can suffer. With the Law Offices of John W. Merting, you will have experienced legal representation in your corner in the wake of a shipyard accident.
