When legal issues arise in a maritime environment, workers and businesses can struggle with ensuing legal questions and complexities. Does it matter whether I was injured on a ship, liftboat, jack-up rig, semisubmersible, offshore platform or on a maritime loading dock? What can I do if my cargo was damaged or stolen, or was sent to the wrong place? And who can help when injuries occur on cruise ships?

The maritime law attorneys of Spagnoletti Law Firm have provided more than a century of combined legal services to clients facing a broad range of legal issues involving maritime law, the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA), and international laws and treaties relating to ships and ships' crews and passengers. Maritime law is a core component of our business, and our practice areas include:

  • Jones Act claims: We represent injured or killed seamen, ensuring that they receive the compensation due to them by law.
  • Injured maritime workers, representing workers injured in or near waterfronts, or who are injured in the offshore exploration or production business.
