What Is Maritime Law?
But what exactly is maritime law anyway? It’s a broad field, that requires a deep understanding to be able to handle any case, but in short, it is an entire field of legal study relating to maritime cases (or cases that happen on the water). Here at Irwin Law, we divide this field into three areas of practice that are our specialty:
1) Marine Personal Injury
When you’re injured at sea, things are a little different than on land. For one, you may need immediate medical attention, but there is none to be found, worsening your condition. How do you file a claim? What else do you need to keep in mind? For example, does maritime jurisdiction apply? All this and more, we’ll help you figure out.
2) Cruise Ship Accidents
Did you know that when you go on a cruise, your ticket acts a contract? This contract sets out a short limit of time in which you can file a claim to a court. But this can be a lengthy, complicated legal process. When you’re under this kind of time-limit, you want someone on your side that wastes not a second and knows exactly what they’re doing. That’s why Irwin Law is here for you.
3) Buying & Selling Yachts
Why do I need a lawyer for buying/selling my own yacht? We can help with a number of things. We can help you with your homework and make sure that the yacht you are purchasing is truly the one for you. If selling, we can help you make sure everything is properly inspected, protecting you from potential lawsuits. And we can help with so much more.
