Maritime law or Admiralty law is a distinct area of law which governs various maritime related matters. Maritime law is made up largely of federal statutes and federal case law which govern the navigable waters in and surrounding the United States. The laws which govern maritime matters can be vastly different than non-maritime related personal injury and property damage claims. Because of the unique nature of maritime law, it is important that you hire attorneys with experience in maritime law so you are properly represented.
