If you have been injured in a recreational boat accident, you will have some choices about who you turn to for legal help. The Boston area has numerous personal injury litigation firms who will say that they can help you get maximum compensation for your injuries. The truth is, though, most personal injury attorneys don’t understand the nuances involved in accidents that take place on the water.
Admiralty and maritime law isn’t like land-based common law. Your attorney’s experience will make a significant difference in the outcome of your claim. It makes sense to hire a trial lawyer with broad experience and skill in maritime litigation.
