Maritime Accident Attorneys for Seamen Injured in California Waters
California has more than 840 miles of coastal shoreline and eight major ports that ship and receive thousands of international oil tankers, cargo and other commercial vessels every year. If you are an American or international merchant mariner, a commercial fisherman, boat crewman or longshoreman injured while working on coastal, harbor or inland waters in California, you are covered for compensation under U.S. admiralty Jones Act law.
Jones Act claims are unique and often complex. Successfully navigating the court processes and statute of limitations requires in-depth knowledge of legal procedures and court expectations. Because U.S. admiralty law claims can fall under federal court as well as state court jurisdiction, you are entitled to hire an experienced law firm anywhere in the nation, provided your attorney has the resources and capacity to work with local counsel in California.
Maritime injury claims can leave you frustrated and feeling hopeless. We know what your claim means to you and your family. We have helped thousands of injured oil workers, merchant seamen and fishermen get fast, fair treatment for the compensation they need for themselves and their families. We put a primary focus on providing the most efficient services possible. Decades of experience enable us to move cases along quickly and help our clients get the money they need for their injury claims.
