ADMIRALTY & MARITIME LAW
Maritime law is as complex and ever-changing as the sea itself. The law firm of Duval, Funderburk, Sundbery, Richard, and Watkins understands these challenges and has the experience to effectively represent you and your business in even the most difficult admiralty and maritime law cases. The firm also negotiates and drafts agreements between companies in the maritime industry.
The Jones Act provides protection to persons who are members of the crew of a vessel. This law applies to inland river workers as well as offshore workers who work on floating and movable structures such as ships, tugs / towboats, crew boats, tankers, cargo ships, fishing vessels, and cruise and recreational ships.
Our attorneys have years of experience navigating legal issues related to shipping, including the defense of cases filed pursuant to the Jones Act and the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. We have a solid track record of resolving claims for property loss and/or personal injury, and zealously defend our corporate clients against such claims brought by current and former employees.
