Maritime Accidents

Cases involving maritime law differ from ordinary state principles that apply to accidents that occur on land. If you are injured in an accident that occurred on a seafaring vessel (military or commercial) or other offshore setting such as working on a dock or offshore oil platform, it is vitally important that you hire a personal injury lawyer who is experienced in maritime law.

Some of the most common injuries suffered by victims in maritime cases include:
  • Burn injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Head injury
  • Neck injuries
  • Spinal fusion
  • Back injuries
  • Broken bones

Our maritime lawyers have an in-depth understanding of admiralty law including The Jones Act, the Longshore & Harbor Workers Compensation Act, and the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act. This allows our attorneys to give you the best possible representation in handling claims in both state and federal court.

Over the years we have successfully represented a wide range of injured maritime workers including deckhands, tankermen, pilots, engineers, oilers, drilling crew members aboard jack-ups and semisubmersibles, Navy divers and welders on pipeline barges and more. Whether you are a blue-water seaman, a brown-water seaman or a dock-based worker, there are special rights and claims that may apply to your case. Our experienced maritime attorneys can help ensure that you receive the best possible legal representation to recover all of the damages that you deserve.

Our law firm is dedicated to helping the victims of maritime accidents maintain their lives after they suffer a serious injury or other tragic event. Once we accept your case, we will provide you with financial support for vital medical care – and we can also help you find a physician, if needed. In addition, we provide counseling, support and guidance throughout your case. And just as importantly, we will handle all aspects of dealing with insurance companies, filing your legal claim and litigating your case from start to finish. You can rest assured that we will be here to help you throughout the entire legal process as we work toward obtaining the full value of your claim.

Finding yourself in the middle of a personal injury case is not a pleasant experience. I could not have been more blessed than to have Mr. Boyd Anderson represent me in that difficult time. He treated me and my family with respect and earned my complete trust. Mr. Anderson is an extremely skilled attorney and did an exceptional job with my case. His support staff, Tammy and Donna, are also amazing to work with. They are very thorough and took care of every detail, so that I could concentrate on healing. I would not hesitate for a second to recommend Boyd Anderson to family and friends. Angie T.

Boyd Anderson, along with his associates and staff always keep you in the know. He is very personable, offers great advise and he saw my suit to the end personally. It’s very rare that an attorney personally responds back to emails and calls. Not to mention the accolades, experience and expertise is top notch and really impressive. I would definitely recommend this firm to anybody if they are serious about winning. This firm gets the job done and exceeds expectations. Shantele J.

With the plethora of advertisements one sees nowdays, it's difficult to discern just who is best qualified to represent you if you need legal assistance. An overabundance of tv commercials does not necessarily point one in the correct direction. When I needed help, I choose Boyd Anderson and his firm. Best decision I ever made. Superlative service throughout the legal process...and I very much appreciated the prompt attention to details I suspect other firms would have probably overlooked. Anderson's team and experience made a huge difference in my life...an exceptional group of professionals...for sure. Paulette P.
