Your Guiding Counselors in Water Law Cases
Admiralty or maritime law is a body of domestic and international law that covers navigable waters. It applies to seamen and others who were injured while working on a boat or vessel as well as people injured in pleasure boating accidents. Admiralty law is a highly specialized legal area, so it is important you speak with an attorney experienced in handling these cases.
At The Brad Hendricks Law Firm, in Little Rock, Arkansas, we welcome inquiries from people injured in pleasure boating and offshore work accidents. We are experienced in handling these unique cases and can help assert and protect our clients’ rights.
We often retain marine safety experts, safety investigators, and other experts who can provide insight and expert testimony to our clients’ claims. We work closely with them to understand what went wrong and who, or what, is responsible for the accident. We also consult medical professionals who can help predict the long-term effects of the injury. Our attorneys are dedicated to putting together a strong claim that aims to obtain the full damages our clients are entitled to receive by law.
Do You Need an Arkansas Jones Act Lawyer?
Part of what makes admiralty and maritime law so complex is the array of special acts specifically designed to protect injured seamen and other maritime accident victims. For example, the Jones Act provides benefits to sailors injured or made ill on the job. The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act protects employees disabled from accidents that occurred on navigable waters. Limitation of liability rules govern how much compensation a person can seek in an offshore accident lawsuit.
Lawyers at our firm understand these laws and the nuances of filing an admiralty and maritime claim. We can talk about your rights, protections, and limitations under these laws in your situation.
