What is Maritime Law or Admiralty Law?
It is a body of law in which the conduct of vessels is governed, including incidents that happen at sea. Louisiana is a coastal state, so many employees work in the maritime industry.

Ship Owners and Admiralty Law
How does admiralty law apply to ship owners? A shipowner is required to care for crew members as well as passengers. If a passenger or crew member is injured due to the negligence of the shipowner, then a suit can be brought against the owner. Shipowners are obligated to maintain their vessels and take safety measures for both passengers and crew members.
The most common need for admiralty law knowledge involves employees. From harbor workers to seamen and offshore oil rig workers, it is essential to know your rights, primarily when an injury occurs. Maritime employment is hazardous and can lead to injury, even death. When an injury occurs, it can lead to high medical bills, time off from work, permanent disability, or death.
If you or a loved one have been injured in a maritime position, it is highly recommended to seek legal counsel and to learn your rights. Our attorneys have decades of experience and can lend a helping hand to see if you qualify to file suit for compensation.
