Boating and shipping accidents are quite common in Florida. If an injury or accident occurs on a boat, either on or off-shore, turn to me, personal injury attorney Justin Caldarone of The Caldarone Law Group, P.A. I will fight to help you collect compensation by filing a maritime injury claim on your behalf.
If you are a seaman currently in the service of a ship and you were injured during the performance of your duties, you may be entitled to receive compensation for food, lodging, medical care and lost wages. These are covered under the Jones Act. If you were a passenger of a ship or boat and were injured, you may be able to hold the boat owner liable. By working with a maritime lawyer like me, you have the chance to file a claim to receive financial compensation for your losses.
At The Caldarone Law Group, P.A., I serve clients in Naples and throughout Florida who have been injured in a shipping or boating accident.
United States Admiralty And Maritime Law
United States admiralty and maritime laws govern navigation and shipping, including commercial and recreational vessels. These laws include state and federal regulations and provisions regarding commerce, seamen, piracy, docks, piers, insurance, canals and more.
I have a broad understanding of these laws as well as the Jones Act, which covers seaman in particular. Regardless of your injuries or what caused them, by consulting a lawyer, you have the chance to understand what you are up against and what can be done to help ensure you receive just compensation for your injuries.
I handle a broad range of recreational and commercial boating and shipping claims, including injuries and deaths resulting from the following:
- Piloting error
- Mechanical failure
- Accidents (slip and fall)
- Hazardous and unsafe conditions
When a boat owner’s negligence leads to an injury or death, legal action can be taken on your behalf to help you or your family obtain just financial compensation for medical care, lost wages and emotional pain and suffering.
