Aggressive Advocacy For Victims Of New Jersey Maritime Accidents

You’d be hard-pressed to find someone in Cape May County who doesn’t love being out on the water. Beaches, boating, fishing and related activities are a way of life in this part of New Jersey, and many people make their living in maritime industries as well.

As wonderful as the sea life can be, it also comes with significant dangers. If you’ve been injured in a maritime accident, the laws governing liability and compensation can be difficult to navigate on your own. Thankfully, help is available when you contact The Law Firm of Charles W. Sandman, III. Our founder, Charles W. Sandman III, used to work as a commercial fisherman, and he is passionate about advocating for clients in maritime law matters.

No Matter How You Were Injured, We May Be Able To Help

Sea activities come with some inherent dangers, and not all maritime accidents are the results of negligence. That being said, many are attributable to poor choices and are therefore preventable. We provide representation to victims of accidents involving the following and more:

  • Boating under the influence
  • Inexperienced or reckless boat operators who speed or otherwise violate safety regulations
  • Injuries, drownings, capsizing and other problems that occur in a rented vessel that was not seaworthy
  • Work-related injuries among commercial fishermen and merchant mariners
  • Dock workers and longshoremen injured in shipyards
  • Passenger or crew injuries suffered on a cruise ship or other private commercial vessel

Many claims for work injuries at sea are governed by the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the Jones Act. Our attorney has an in-depth knowledge of maritime and admiralty law and is ready to help you pursue full and fair compensation for your injuries, regardless of whether you were hurt while working or while engaged in recreational activities.
