Admiralty and Maritime Laws

Philadelphia Admiralty Attorney

A number of major rivers, such as the Ohio River, the Monongahela River, Allegheny and Delaware rivers, flow through Pennsylvania. These rivers are a major source of jobs and commerce, and people throughout Pennsylvania work on barges, ships and docks. This work can be dangerous, and people are regularly injured in these environments. People can suffer serious back, neck and spine injuries. In the worst accidents, death is the result. If you have been injured while doing this work, you may already know that there are specific federal laws that apply to your injuries.

For instance, the Jones Act and the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act dictate the types of compensation that injured maritime workers are entitled to receive. These laws allow for a greater recovery for injured workers than workers' compensation alone. A lawyer can be of great assistance in helping an injured maritime worker recover appropriate damages under the law.

The law firm of Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., is known throughout Pennsylvania for its dedicated, effective representation of injured workers, including maritime workers.
