Maritime Products Liability
Maritime Products Liability Lawyer
If you have been injured aboard a vessel in navigation because of a dangerous or defective product, you may have a claim for compensation under Federal Maritime Law. The Lawyers at Stacey & Jacobsen, LLP are available to review maritime product liability claims involving serious injuries or death.
If you are an injured seaman who was employed aboard a vessel at the time of the accident, you may have a claim for unseaworthiness and Jones Act negligence. Under the Jones Act or the unseaworthiness doctrine, your claims for injury for defective product may be made against your employer or the vessel owner. You may also have claims against the product’s manufacturer. Whether to add the product manufacturer to a seaman injury claim is a complex legal issue.
