Maybe you have never needed the services of an attorney before; but now you do. Obviously, you want an attorney who can handle your particular legal situation, and who has experience and expertise in the area of law relating to your legal needs.

Avoiding malpractice in maritime cases

Several times a year I have the unpleasant task of telling an attorney or potential client that he or she has missed the statute of limitations date in a maritime claim. The most frequent type of case involves either cruise line passengers or workers on fixed oil and gas production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. However, there are numerous other areas in which the statute of limitations under the general maritime law or United States Code differs significantly from that of the negligence statutes of limitations of the various states.

Statutes of limitations

A statute of limitations is the period of time prescribed in which an injured person must file a claim or settle his or her case or the claim will be forever barred. The various statutes of limitations run from the date of injury or death of the seaman in most cases. This article lists the most common limitation periods beginning with the shortest at the top. This article deals solely with the statutes of limitations in various maritime actions. Its purpose is to alert the attorney or injured seaman who may have a potential maritime case to the differences between state law and the general maritime law and the need for consultation with an attorney who handles maritime actions as a part of his or her regular practice.
