When you must file any type of maritime accident claim, it is crucial to hire a maritime accident attorney with solid professional experience handling cases like yours. Stevenson & Murray has cultivated a strong professional reputation as a leading choice for maritime injury counsel and has succeeded in helping clients who work all over the world recover from these accidents. The sooner you secure our firm’s representation, the sooner we can begin working on your case.
The firm represents maritime accident victims and injured seamen working on the East Coast of the United States, the Gulf of Mexico and in oil fields and ports in the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Mexico, Azerbaijan and Singapore. Our clients primarily work in or for the petrochemical industry. However, we have substantial experience in maritime accident cases involving international shipping and dredging work. Additionally, we also represent commercial fishermen injured on the job.
You are far more likely to maximize your compensation for any maritime injury case when you have experienced legal representation on your side. You may be able to assess immediately recognizable losses like the cost of your immediate medical treatment following the accident and lost income during your recovery, but a seasoned attorney can potentially help you reveal additional avenues of recovery that you did not know were available to you. Therefore, the sooner you secure reliable legal counsel, the more likely you are to maximize your recovery efforts.
The timeline for your upcoming case depends on a few variables, largely the clarity of liability for your damages and the scope and severity of those damages. Your maritime accident attorney can provide an estimate of how long your case will take to resolve and identify any potential challenges you could face that may extend this timetable. If your case cannot be resolved through settlement negotiations and must proceed to litigation, it can take several months to conclude.
Your maritime accident attorney can provide a full range of legal representation to suit the unique details of your case. Many maritime accident claims are resolved through insurance claims and/or private settlement negotiations. However, it is possible that your case may require litigation. Depending on how your accident happened, the scope of your damages, and whether the defendant is clearly liable for your injury, your attorney may instead move to file your suit in court directly.
There may not be any strict requirement to hire legal counsel for a maritime accident claim, but doing so will dramatically improve your chances of success with your recovery efforts. An experienced attorney will know how to uncover all your available channels of compensation, gather the evidence needed to prove liability for your damages, and prepare you for the proceedings ahead. Even after accounting for the cost of hiring them, your attorney can make a tremendous positive difference in the final outcome of your case.
It is always best to secure legal representation as soon as possible after a maritime accident. The more time your attorney has to secure evidence on your behalf, the better your chances are of maximizing your total compensation for your damages. Once you have addressed any immediate medical concerns after your accident, you should reach out to an experienced maritime accident attorney you can trust as soon as possible.
