Maritime Law

Offshore, high sea, and dockside workers face numerous dangers not seen by land-based laborers. For this reason, employees in maritime related fields are entitled to many additional protections and benefits not afforded to their land-based counterparts. Federal law including the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, the Outer Continental Shelf Land’s Act, the Defense Base Act, and the general maritime law provide protection and compensation for maritime laborers. While the variety of laws for the maritime industry open many avenues for recovery, it also creates a complex and confusing maze to most attorneys. To give yourself the best opportunity to recover from your losses, it is very important to employ experienced and skilled maritime attorneys like Doyle LLP Trial lawyers. We have helped hundreds of injured international and domestic maritime workers recover compensation after an injury on the job. We encourage you to trust our dedication to fighting for your maritime claim today.

Lawsuits Against Maritime Employers

Some attorneys earn a great living by investing limited effort in a claim and encouraging their clients to accept a quick settlement offer. Unfortunately, these attorneys and other legal advisors usually have limited or no experience in maritime law. The settlements they advise clients to accept almost always vastly undervalue the true value of the claim.
