General Maritime Injury Law

General Maritime Injury Law

In many cases the General Maritime injury law will cover people injured on navigable waterways who are not engaged in maritime employment, such as people injured in boating accidents involving pleasure craft.

There are many different types and causes of boating injuries that could result in a maritime tort claim, and these claims often cross over into other legal practice areas, including: 

  • Boating accidents: This is the basic maritime tort claim, which may look like a standard personal injury claim, but involves numerous factors that are best addressed by an attorney with experience handling boating and other maritime claims. There are many waterways in Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, and Missouri, and if you have been in a boating accident while on one of these waterways, Jeff and the team of lawyers at Godwin, Morris, Laurenzi, and Bloomfield, PC., can help you get the compensation you deserve.
  • Products liability: This is when the injury was caused by the defect or failure of the boat or equipment due to faulty design, production or performance.
  • Drowning accidents: When a loved one has drowned, you might have a maritime tort and wrongful death claim.
  •  Maritime worker injured by a third party: This is when a riverboat crewmember or other maritime worker is injured by a third party, perhaps when transferring onto a third party’s boat or using a third party’s equipment. This kind of case can often result in a tort claim against the third party as well as a Jones Act claim against the riverboat company or an LHWCA claim against the maritime worker’s employer.
