Sarasota, FL Maritime Law

Maritime law is complex and covers a broad range of purposes, from protecting the health of maritime workers to regulating recreational boating. It’s especially important when it comes to keeping people safe.

Florida was home to the most boating accidents in the country last year. Meanwhile, sea workers, boat operators, dock workers, ship builders, and other maritime workers can have difficult and dangerous jobs, and face potentially hazardous conditions every day. 

If you or a close relative were injured on a maritime job or in a boating accident, the Sarasota Morgan & Morgan team can help. We understand the intricacies of maritime law and can fight for the compensation you deserve. To learn more, fill out our free, no-obligation case evaluation form today.

Morgan & Morgan

  • The Jones Act

    Maritime workers are covered by their own set of laws to protect their livelihood. The Merchant Marine Act of 1920 (better known as the Jones Act) provides offshore workers with the right to recover compensation immediately after suffering an injury.

    The Jones Act requires maritime employers to pay for medical care and living expenses (known as “maintenance and cure”) for any worker injured on the job, no matter who was at fault. The law also ensures that offshore workers can pursue negligence claims against their employers if they feel they were working in an unsafe environment.

  • Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act

    The Longshore and Harbor Workers Compensation Act (LHWCA) is a federal law that covers onshore maritime workers, including stevedores, ship builders, and longshore workers, among others. The law ensures that workers receive medical care, disability compensation, and death benefits from injuries arising at work.

    If you are an onshore maritime worker and you believe you are being denied compensation for an injury that should be covered by the LHWCA, contact one of our Sarasota Morgan & Morgan lawyers. Our team has the knowledge, experience, and resources to pursue any compensation you have been unjustly denied.
