Maritime Accidents

Kent Maritime Accident Lawyer

Understanding Maritime Law

Maritime accidents include injuries sustained in boating accidents, cruise ship accidents, and accidents covered under the Jones Act (such as oil rig accidents, international maritime injuries, shore-based maritime accidents, and fatal accidents at sea).

Accidents at sea have a unique set of laws that apply to them, such as the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, and the Longshore and Harbor Worker’s Compensation Act. These laws are designed to protect fishermen, seamen, oil rig workers, and harbor workers and their families.

Dore Law Group, PLLC has a proven track record of success in representing injured maritime workers and their families in Kent and throughout the state of Washington. We can help you fight for the full, fair recovery you are owed.

Statute of Limitations for Maritime Accident Claims

Similar to other personal injury laws, maritime laws also have a statute of limitations. The statute of limitations concerns the time in which an action must be filed after the accident occurs or after the injury first becomes apparent. If a lawsuit is not filed prior to the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations, the person will be prevented from ever filing a lawsuit for their injuries. Thus, if you have been injured in a maritime accident, it is important that you promptly contact a lawyer so that the statute of limitations for your claim does not expire.
