Maritime Accidents


Transportation and recreation by sea are important staples of globalized commerce and tourism. Unfortunately, accidents and tragedy on the high seas sometimes occur. Passengers injured in a maritime accident may be entitled to recover damages, especially when the event was due to someone’s wrongdoing, or negligence. Large scale accidents, like a fire on a passenger ferry, or the sinking of a cruise ship, can implicate complex transnational legal issues and procedures. Members of the Global Justice Network are knowledgeable in maritime law and have successfully represented the injured or families of deceased passengers in many of recent history’s worst seafaring disasters.
