Injuries To Professional Mariners
Personal injuries can occur on any type of vessel. The staff at the Bluestein Law Firm, P.A., provides experienced representation to people who have been injured on commercial vessels and ships. Whether the injured person was an employee working on the boat or not, we help our clients understand their rights in the aftermath of an injury and work to obtain compensation for their injuries.
After sustaining an injury on a commercial vessel, it is important to speak with a lawyer who understands admiralty and maritime law. Injured maritime workers have special rights that are not available to land-based workers. Learn more about injured seamen.
Work With Someone Who Knows Maritime Law
Any personal injury lawyer can handle an injury case on land. Maritime law governs actions occurring on water and is a separate and distinct area of law. To ensure that your rights are protected, it is in your best interest to be represented by an experienced and knowledgeable admiralty/maritime injury lawyer, such as attorney S. Scott Bluestein.
Mr. Bluestein routinely represents professional mariners, seamen, mates, deckhands, dredge workers, casino boat workers, fishermen and other injured maritime workers. To learn more about your options for bringing an admiralty lawsuit for compensation, contact our South Carolina firm today.
Industrial And Commercial Boats Where Injuries Occur
The different types of industrial and commercial boats that conduct business throughout South Carolina and along the seaways that border the state include:
- Fishing boats

If you are a worker who was injured on an industrial or commercial boat, you may have additional claims that fall under the Jones Act, The Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act or other specialized legislations.
