Maritime & Admiralty
Florida Personal Injury Lawyer – Maritime and Admiralty Law
When an injury accident occurs on board a boat or as the result of maritime-related activities, it can often be difficult to determine which laws apply and which legal entity might have jurisdiction over the incident. That is why if you have suffered any type of maritime-related injury, you should consult with a personal injury attorney familiar with maritime or admiralty law. Florida maritime lawyer Mark J. Leeds has more than 30 years of experience in handling maritime injury and accident cases in Florida with success. When Mark reviews your case, he will be able to determine the various facets of personal injury and admiralty law that may apply and ascertain whether or not you may be due any remuneration.
Florida Maritime/Admiralty Lawyer – Representation for Accidents In or On the Water
Though admiralty law can be incredibly complex, in general, it applies to any vessel that is in—or could be in—navigable waters. Consequently, maritime law can apply to recreational watercraft, commercial boats, and offshore rigs. If you have been injured in an accident on the water, it is important to contact an experienced Florida personal injury lawyer who can determine whether or not admiralty law applies to your case. Florida accident attorney Mark J. Leeds can help to ascertain whether sufficient negligence was present in your case to warrant a personal injury case, and if so, whether or not maritime or land-based laws apply to your situation.
Personal Injury and Maritime Law in Florida
Because so many factors must coalesce for an injury claim to fall under maritime law, Florida victims will want to have the guidance of an experienced and knowledgeable admiralty law attorney to guide them and provide them with legal counsel. Florida personal injury lawyer Mark J. Leeds offers the expertise and the track record of success with maritime personal injury cases that victims can trust. Mark will carefully review your case, and if it can be shown that the boat operator failed to follow standard safety procedures or was otherwise negligent, that operator negligence was what was behind the accident, and that your injuries were a direct result of the negligence and the accident that followed, then he will aggressively work to help you try to obtain any remuneration that you may be due.
Accidents In, But Not On the Water
Maritime law can also apply to injuries you may have sustained while in the water if those injuries were caused by a water-based vessel. Because such injuries can be extremely serious, it is essential that you obtain the help of a Florida personal injury attorney as soon as possible so that if you are entitled to any benefits, you can begin to build your case quickly. Florida admiralty lawyer Mark J. Leeds will provide the compassionate legal counsel that you need while vigorously representing you and your interests so that you have the best possible chance of pursuing the compensation to which you may be entitled.
