At Tabak, Mellusi & Shisha, we provide results-oriented representation in all types of maritime injury cases. We tirelessly pursue compensation for people hurt on ship or shore, whether the accident occurred while working, while traveling or while engaged in recreational activities.
Our experienced attorneys are well-versed in the unique laws that apply in these claims, laws that are distinct from those that are used in land-based personal injury and workers' compensation cases. For example, we pursue:
- Jones Act claims
- Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act claims
- Death on the High Seas Act claims
Our comprehensive admiralty and offshore injury practice includes handling:
- Passenger and recreational boat accidents
- Fishing boat accidents
- Tug, barge and ferry accidents
- Deckhand accidents
- Unseaworthiness claims
- Civilian defense workers and contractors injured in war zones
We also represent maritime workers in employment law matters such as wrongful termination, discrimination and wage disputes.
