Tampa Maritime Attorney

Tampa Bay, Florida

Confidence. “Confidence” is defined as “the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something; firm trust”. Nationwide, attorneys and clients have trusted our 25 years of experience in handling maritime injury cases in Florida. 25 years in handling cruise ship injury cases; confidence in 25 years of handling boating accidents and JetSki injuries cases. We are located in Florida and this allows us to handle all Boating Accident cases, Jet Ski cases, and Cruise Ship cases Statewide in Florida. Cases include

  • Cruise ship fall downs.
  • Cruise ship sexual assaults.
  • Cruise ship injuries resulting from equipment failure or crew negligence.
  • Boating crashes (collisions and allisions).
  • Boating injuries from operator error (wake-bounce injury cases, passenger ejections, fall downs, propeller injuries, hull strike injuries.
  • JetSki collisions (with vessels, other Jetskis, docks, structures, etc.)
  • JetSki striking swimmers.
  • Parasailing injury cases.

Why does it matter? Jurisdiction. Knowledge. Experience.

Jurisdiction for most cruise ship injury cases is in Florida. Therefore, regardless of the residence of the victim, the case likely has to be filed in Florida. The same is true for boating injury cases, JetSki cases, and Parasail injury cases that occurred in the State of Florida—they almost always have to be filed in the State of Florida.

Knowledge of which laws apply, maritime or Florida law or both, must be known. Where to file suit, state court or federal court is a must and can be fatal to the case if not filed correctly.

Experience is a difference with our 25 years in practice, in maritime law, in Florida. Experience works for you in that we see the same maritime defense attorneys repeatedly when handling client maritime claims. We are not real estate attorneys, family law attorneys, or bankruptcy, etc.  We are maritime attorneys representing clients against cruise lines, maritime insurers, and at-fault vessel and JetSki owners.
