 Maritime Accidents

Whether a boat, jet ski, ship, aircraft or inner tube, any injury or death that occurs in or over navigable water may be subject to Maritime & Admiralty law.

Maritime Law involves different procedures, deadlines, or limitations on claims and/or recoverable damages. 


An unwary lawyer may not appreciate the distinctions involved in claims arising on the water. I have personally tried Maritime Claims to a Jury and have litigated mishaps involving civilian, military, private and civil government vessels before Judges and Juries in the Florida State and Federal Courts.  Avoid a second disaster and call me to handle your claim correctly.   



My clients, two police officers, were both seriously hurt when their boat struck a partially submerged piling left in the river by bridge contractors. I was able to prove that the contractors and State of Florida created a foreseeable hazard and recovered full value for them.


Another client was badly injured when his new boat's windshield came off and struck him in the face. After a trial, the Jury found that the manufacturer was liable and found that he had sustained $1.2 Million in damages.


A welding contractor fell two stories down an unguarded USS John F. Kennedy Aircraft Carrier access trunk. The US Government paid $300,000 after a lengthy federal Court battle.


My client was fatally injured in a Freeport, Bahamas airplane crash after its pilot exhausted fuel. Maritime law's  Death on the High Seas Act severely limited the claims.

    If someone you know has been fatally or  catastrophically injured on the water, please call me at 904.355.6000.


The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask for free information about my qualifications and experience.
