Maritime Attorneys Who Get Results
Million Dollar Recoveries for People Injuries at Sea for Over 50 Years
Merchant seamen, commercial fishermen and other maritime workers are the hardest-working people we know. Dedicated workers make great sacrifices to take long journeys away from their families. Our firm knows this as fact because we have been representing maritime workers for over 50 years.
When a maritime worker is injured or dies at sea, the employer and its insurance carrier are going to be on the ship to investigate as soon as it returns or even when it is out at sea. While workers are entitled to maintenance and cure, the employer and insurance company are going to be working hard to minimize your claim and place the blame for the injury on you. Who will be on your side?
Maritime attorneys Carolyn Latti and David Anderson are carrying on their family’s legacy of helping those injured or killed at sea. Carolyn’s father, Michael Latti, started the firm over 50 years ago, and Carolyn grew up in the business similar to many of her clients and families who have a long history of working or being involved on the water. Carolyn and her brother-in-law David Anderson now practice law together to ensure clients get the money they need and deserve after an injury puts them out of work or a death leaves a family devastated.
Our firm offers confidential meetings and free legal advice to any maritime worker injured or family member whose loved one was killed at sea. Before you speak to any insurance company, before you fill out an accident report, before you agree to anything—call us first. We are on your side.
What Maritime Workers Need To Know
Injured as a Passenger?
Passenger ticket clauses have strict time limits for claims. Speak to a maritime attorney immediately after an injury on a passenger vessel.
Our firm represents clients seriously harmed on:
- Ferry Rides
- Whale Watching Tours
- Cruise Ships
- Recreational Boats
Many workers are not aware of the full extent of their legal rights after an injury. Vessel owners, employers and insurance agents will be very friendly, making promises to take care of them. Workers want to believe this and will be concentrating on their own health and medical treatment, leaving them at risk of being blindsided when they do not receive the money they need to live.
If you have been injured at sea, know this:
- You do not have to speak to an insurance company to receive maintenance and cure.
- You do not have to fill out an accident report to receive maintenance and cure.
- The accident report more than likely will be used against you.
- There are many expenses that your employer must pay for, but no one will tell you what those expenses are in the hope that you fail to enforce your rights.
- You have the right to seek treatment from any doctor of your choice.
- You do not need any money to have a qualified attorney represent you.
