Louisiana maritime law: Injured while on a charter boat

For fun, you and your friends decided to charter a boat for a day with a full crew at your service. You believed the crew experienced and the boat seaworthy, as the company you rented through has received good reviews. Your trip started out well enough and you were enjoying some of the many beautiful waterways that Louisiana has to offer. Unfortunately, your trip came to an abrupt and rough end when your boat was involved in an accident, and you and your friends suffered injuries. If this sounds even remotely close to a situation you've found yourself in, a maritime law attorney may be able to help you.

The charter boat business in Louisiana is pretty big. Locals and vacationers alike use these services for personal or professional reasons. At the end of the day, it does not matter if you boarded a charter boat for fun or work, if the boat is involved in an accident resulting in you suffering injuries, or you become injured due to a trip, slip, fall or a number of other possible reasons, you may be entitled to seek compensation for your losses.

Maritime laws govern the charter boat industry. This means that there are certain rules and regulations in place that charter businesses or boat owners must abide by. To learn a little more about maritime law and how it is meant to protect you, please take a moment and visit our firm's website.

Maritime law is in a category all its own. Filing claims due to suffering injuries while aboard a charter boat is a bit different than filing a personal injury claim following a traffic accident. If you've been hurt while out on a charter boat, a Louisiana-based maritime law attorney can review your case and -- if appropriate -- help you take the actions necessary to seek compensation for your losses.
