Mississippi and Gulf Coast Maritime and Boating Accident Attorneys
A distinct body of laws governs maritime matters. If you have suffered serious injury offshore or you have lost a loved one in an offshore accident, you may be entitled to file a claim under the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, or the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Act.
Since the burden to prove negligence is with the injured party, you need Mississippi accident lawyers who have experience investigating and litigating such personal injury claims. Some of the offshore accidents which fall under maritime law are the following:
- Cruise Ship Accidents
- Tugboat and Fishing Accidents
- Offshore Injuries
- Platform and Oil Rig Injuries
- Passenger & Recreational Boating
- Diving Accidents
Included in the damages you may be able to recover are medical expenses, funeral and burial expenses, lost wages (including future earnings), loss of enjoyment of life, and damages for physical and emotional pain and suffering
