South Carolina Pleasure Boat Case Lawyer
If you were involved in a boating accident, you are suddenly faced with injuries, medical bills and lost wages. When a fun excursion on the water results in injury or a wrongful death, count on a South Carolina recreational boating accident lawyer at the Bluestein Law Firm, P.A., for quality legal representation.
Admiralty and maritime laws apply to boating accidents that occur at sea or on lakes or rivers. Maritime law is very different from the law that applies to auto accidents or other accidents that occur on land. That is why you need an experienced maritime attorney to handle your recreational boating accident.

Wrongful Death as a Result of South Carolina Boating Accidents
Maritime attorney S. Scott Bluestein represents clients who wish to bring wrongful death claims on behalf of loved ones who have died in boating accidents. Wrongful death claims for injuries on water are substantially different from wrongful death claims for accidents that occurred on land.
These claims are particularly sensitive, and we represent clients compassionately and effectively.

At the Bluestein Law Firm, clients receive top quality representation from an attorney who truly cares about the outcome of their case. Mr. Bluestein is familiar with the standard of care, limitation of liability proceedings,* federal navigational rules and federal laws that need to be considered in an at-sea wrongful death claim.
To speak with an experienced maritime lawyer regarding a boating accident injury, a seaman injury or the death of a loved one at sea, contact a Charleston, South Carolina, boating accident lawyer at our firm. We help our clients protect their rights and pursue the compensation they deserve for their injuries.
