Trust Our Jacksonville Boating Accident Attorneys
Our law firm knows how to win maritime accident cases
Boating is a huge part of life in Florida, whether you're on the water for business or pleasure. While the maritime industry has made many safety advances over the years, the fact remains that going out on the water can be dangerous. People who are hurt in these types of accidents can experience lifelong consequences. You may have even lost a loved one in a fatal accident.
If you've been injured in a boating accident or while at work offshore, you need an experienced maritime accident attorney who understands the complex laws that govern these cases. You need The Law Firm of Pajcic & Pajcic.
Helping victims of maritime accidents and their families
The men and women who work on ships put their lives on the line every day. Unfortunately, their employers don't always take necessary steps to keep those workers safe. In one high-profile case, our law firm is representing the wife of a man killed on the El Faro, a cargo ship that sank while traveling from Jacksonville to Puerto Rico. Our client, Tina Riehm, was featured in a 60 Minutes story about the tragedy.
Likewise, people who enjoy leisure time on the water face many of the same risks that motorists do on the road. Drunk, impaired or distracted operators. Vehicles with shoddy manufacturing or design defects. There's always the potential for a collision or other accident that causes serious injury, and because it can be hard to seek medical help under some circumstances, those injuries can be even deadlier.
The laws governing these accidents are complex, and proving negligence in maritime cases can be difficult. Evidence disappears quickly on the water, and the companies involved have substantial resources on their side. But our attorneys have a proven track record of overcoming those challenges and building winning legal cases.
