Maritime, Boating and Cruise Ship Injuries

Boston Massachusetts cruise ship passenger, recreational boater and professional seaman’s injury lawyers

If you’ve been injured aboard a ship, ferry or small boat while navigating the Massachusetts waterways or coastline, or hails from a Massachusetts port, you need the legal services of an accomplished maritime and Admiralty Law attorney. We have the expertise to safely steer you through the rocky shoals of this specialized area of the law.  Examples of how we may help include:

  • If you’ve been injured while working aboard a vessel as a crew member you may not be entitled to state workers compensation.  Rather, you may have greater rights under Federal Law, including the Merchant Marine Act of 1920 (the Jones Act).
  • If you’ve been injured while a passenger aboard a vessel, your claim may be subject to strict Federal Law requirements, including statutes of limitations that may be shorter than under state law.
  • If you’ve been injured while recreationally boating, your claim may be subject to complex issues regarding not only marine insurance but homeowners insurance as well.

We have represented injured seamen, commercial fishermen, cruise ship and ferry passengers and recreational boaters and sailors for over fifteen years.

If you have been injured on the water, our maritime and Admiralty Law attorneys will work quickly to help preserve your rights, establish your remedies and recover your losses.
