Tirelessly Pursuing Compensation For People Hurt On The Water
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 as a deckhand or a Merchant Marine officer or aboard a cruise ship.
Our experienced attorneys are well-versed in the unique laws that apply in these claims, which are significantly different from those that are used in land-based personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. For example, we pursue claims under the Jones Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act and the Death on the High Seas Act.
Our comprehensive admiralty and offshore injury practice handles cases involving injuries that occur on all types of vessels, including:
- Commercial fishing boat accidents
- Offshore injuries on blue water ships
- Injuries to workers on tugboats, barges and ferries
- Accidents involving all types of workers on cruise ships, from servers and entertainers to deckhands and officers
We also represent maritime workers in employment law matters such as wrongful termination, discrimination and wage disputes. In addition to helping injured workers, we represent passengers who have been injured on cruise ships and recreational boats.
