Maritime Accidents in New York and Boston

Experienced Maritime and Admiralty Law Lawyers Handling East Coast Accident Claims

The harbors and ports of New York City and Boston are among the busiest on the Eastern Seaboard. Ships from all over the world are in constant motion, loading and unloading cargo onto heavily trafficked docks. Unfortunately, with this large number of ships and workers comes a dramatic increase in the number of serious maritime accidents.

At the Houston law firm of Stevenson & Murray, we represent maritime accident victims throughout the United States, including the Atlantic Coastline. We have extensive experience handling both maritime accidents and Jones Act cases and have earned a reputation for providing strong representation designed to produce results.

If you or a loved one has fallen victim to a maritime accident in the New York or Boston area, do not hesitate to contact our offices. We offer a free initial consultation with a leading maritime injury attorney. Se habla español.

What Does the Jones Act Cover?

Many of our clients are uncertain if their injuries fall into a category covered by the Jones Act. In general, the Jones Act covers crewmen who are injured or die through the negligence of their employers aboard vessels in navigable waters at sea or rivers, lakes, bays, bayous, sounds, or any other waterway. Damages for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost earning capacity may be recovered. We provide dedicated advocacy to injured crewmen seeking recovery under the Jones Act.

At Stevenson & Murray, we also handle claims against third parties other than the employer for those who may be covered under the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA). While many employees injured aboard a vessel—the captain, first mate, deckhands, engineers, wipers, and even cooks and housekeepers—may have a claim under the Jones Act, others like longshoremen and offshore workers may need experienced legal help to find other sources of compensation and benefits, such as LHWCA claims for qualified maritime workers or state workers’ compensation benefits.
