Maritime Law FAQs
When do I need an attorney?
You should consult an attorney experienced in admiralty law soon after your injury. The statue of limitations varies from state to state, but time is of the essence.
If I have a maritime issue, will any attorney do?
NO! Think of it this way, if you had a heart condition that needed immediate attention. What kind of doctor would you need? If you wanted the best and most specialized care, you wouldn’t see a podiatrist. You would see a cardiologist. Likewise, if you have been injured on the water, a real estate attorney won’t do the best for your family! You need a maritime attorney!
