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. From seamen to oil rig workers, some individuals will face issues or injuries relating to their job and need help with admiralty law. That is where we come in. At Cueria Law Firm, we specialize in assisting offshore employees who have been hurt in an accident. We have over 25 years of experience in handling cases that fall under the admiralty law and are here to help you. 

 There are many types of injuries that you could be entitled to receive compensation for under the maritime laws. 

Admiralty law not only covers employees but also focuses on individuals who are passengers of a sea vessel. Admiralty law is complex and includes many things. That is why it is important to work with a seasoned attorney’s office who specializes in maritime law. 

 Understanding your rights about your situation will give you a better chance at a fair recovery. Cueria Law Firm is very knowledgeable about cases that fall within this scope of the law and will schedule a free consultation with you to discuss your case.

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.

Don’t suffer alone with the day to day stresses, pain, and discomfort from your injuries that occurred due to someone else’s negligence. Contact our law offices today to have your case reviewed. Cueria Law Firm, LLC has been helping New Orleans and Louisianna residents for over 25 years with their maritime and admiralty cases. (504) 525-5211
