Wrongful Death (Maritime)

Wrongful Death (Maritime)

Losing a loved one in a maritime accident can be the most difficult challenge a family can face. You need not face it alone. You may have a claim against the party that caused the death. Nothing can replace a loved one who was lost but you can recover money to help support a family in need, and face the other party in court to take ownership of their actions.

Maritime wrongful deaths can involve a special law, the Death on the High Seas Act. Lawyers who do not specialize in admiralty generally do not know this complex area of law. We are specialists with the experience you need to advocate for your family when you need it most.
