What is a Maritime Trial Lawyer?
Local Maritime Trial Lawyers Representing Nationwide Workers and People Injured at Sea
Whether a passenger on a cruise ship or whale watch boat, or if you work as a merchant seaman or longshoreman and got injured on the job, you have rights under maritime laws. A maritime trial lawyer has the specialized knowledge to handle injury and wrongful death claims involving navigable water, knowledge that attorneys practicing general personal injury law may not have. Navigable water accidents occur on seas, oceans, lakes, rivers and in or near ports. If you were hurt in one of these locations, hiring a maritime attorney may be the best option for you.
Maritime laws are complex, and those hurt on or around the water need qualified maritime trial lawyers working on their side for the best chance to recover money for their injuries.
The maritime trial lawyers at Latti & Anderson LLP have been helping those injured at sea and on land from across the nation for more than 50 years. When potential clients call or contact our Massachusetts firm, our maritime trial lawyers and in-house investigator will get started right away taking actions to protect their rights. Our attorneys can help anyone hurt in a maritime accident, including:
