Maritime law is a division of law that governs businesses and business activity involved with ships and shipping, as well as any crimes that occur on the open water. This legal division involves separate codes and jurisdictions, aside from national laws. When situations arise that involve insurance claims and property damage of ships and cargo or civil cases arising between businesses or companies and individuals, parties involved must understand how this division of law applies to and governs the resolution of the issues.
Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers is fighting an attempt by defense contractor AECOM to apply Sharia law to Doyle LLP Client’s claim against the company. Doyle
LLP’s Client was severely injured when an intoxicated AECOM employee wrecked the company bus into her vehicle on a military base in Afghanistan. The employee was on his way to Latin Night on the other side of the base, and AECOM allowed off duty employees to use the bus during leisure time. This time, however, an AECOM employee, who did not have a valid driver’s license because of a prior DUI, had consumed a water bottle full of vodka before getting behind the wheel. Doyle LLP filed suit in June of 2014 in California Superior Court for the County of Los Angeles, where AECOM’s company headquarters is located.
Doyle LLP Trial Lawyers has filed suit against Anslow-Bryant Construction, Ltd. for wrongful termination following a work injury of its client.
The Texas Labor Code prohibits employers from discriminating against or terminating an employee in retaliation for making a workers’ compensation claim. Nonetheless, Anslow-Bryant terminated Doyle LLP’s client, following his June 2015 work injury.
