Imagine all the endless possibilities that can happen with waterborne vessels and their crews. Negligence could occur on a ship; a vessel could get into an accident, either with another vessel or due to unforeseen circumstances; or a shipyard may be at fault for damage or injuries involving something, or someone, at sea. There are infinite possibilities here, and they are all governed by admiralty and maritime law.

In Pensacola, Florida, the name to know for this area of law is John W. Merting. He has handled hundreds of cases over the years, ranging from shipyard accidents, to cruise ship accidents, to recreational boating issues, as well as Jones Act claims and injury claims at sea.

The Law Offices of John W. Merting handle a wide variety of issues, including:

  • Oil rig and boat injuries — these claims can involve serious injuries, such as catastrophic harm, permanent disabilities, brain injuries, or even death.
  • Cruise ship accidents and assaults — passengers, and even crew members, can fall victim to attacks by other people, illnesses, or accidents and injuries during a cruise.
  • Wrongful death claims — the sea is a dangerous place, and unfortunately some people die under negligent or wrongful circumstances.
