Life at sea is a reality for many, whether commercial fishermen, merchant seamen or simply pleasure boaters who love the water. However, when the ocean turns violent, the perils faced are sometimes insurmountable. If proper safety precautions and procedures are not taken, or if equipment fails or is in poor condition, accidents can and will occur. Thousands of people are seriously injured or killed at sea every year in United States coastal waters and countless others across the globe.
Federal, state, and international maritime laws each have their own unique regulations regarding boating accidents. As a result, pursuing a claim to receive compensation for maritime related injuries can be a complicated process.
At Muggeo & Associates, our boating accident attorneys have decades of experience handling these complex claims on behalf of commercial fishermen, merchant seamen, researchers, and pleasure boaters. Both Louis J. Muggeo and Jared J. Muggeo are United States Coast Guard licensed captains and have hundreds of hours at sea. We also represent private yacht clubs and marinas.
