If you or someone you know has been injured at sea due to industrial or other negligence, it’s vital for you to seek an attorney who understands the details of maritime law, and can earn just compensation for your suffering. The Cape May maritime lawyers at Barry, Corrado & Grassi offer legal assistance and representation to both residents and visitors who have been injured or killed in maritime accidents along the Cape May coast.
Maritime accidents include fishing accidents, recreational boating accidents, ferry and cruise ship accidents, tug and barge accidents and more. Maritime injuries can be more complicated than injuries that happen on land. Both the laws and remedies are different. In navigable waters and in the open sea, the federal government and courts have jurisdiction, which means that state personal injury laws do not apply.
The Jones Act provides legal protection for seamen and sea workers injured or killed at sea. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a maritime worker, it is your right to file a claim and seek compensation from the employer to help protect your family and livelihood.
We are highly experienced in maritime law, and we understand the complexities and differences, including international agreements and treaties that govern activities in navigable waters. Our firm represents workers throughout the East Coast, and we bring our experience and passion to each case. We have been successfully representing residents and visitors for over 40 years, but we remain committed to understand the ever-changing laws and protecting your rights.
