Florida Maritime Injury Attorney

Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean to the East and the Gulf of Mexico to West, Florida is a premier destination for water enthusiasts. From recreational boating, fishing and diving to disembarking on a cruise vacation, people across the U.S. and around the globe flock to Florida to take advantage of an endless range of water-based activities.

In addition to its recreational offerings, Florida also serves as a hub for the maritime industry. Maritime activities account for approximately 13 percent of the state’s gross domestic product, with cargo and cruise activities at Florida’s public seaports contributing over $117 billion in economic value to the state’s economy. Seaports across the state create close to 900,000 jobs directly and indirectly, and maritime industry activities contribute more than $4 billion in state and local taxes.

With so many commercial and recreational activities taking place on the ocean, as well as lakes, rivers and other waterways, maritime and other water-based accidents are a far too common occurrence in Florida. These types of unfortunate events can result in serious bodily harm. Many victims suffer long-term injuries requiring extensive high-cost medical care, and in the worst-case scenarios, a wrongful death can occur.

The Florida maritime lawyers at Brais Law Firm have vast experience handling boating, cruise ship and other maritime accident claims. We represent people who have been injured in all types of accidents occurring in and around Florida’s ports, harbors and navigable waters, including the following areas:

Our lawyers also routinely represent Jones Act seamen, crew members, dock and harbor workers and other maritime employees who are injured aboard cruise ships, ferries, tugs and barges, tankers and other vessels.

The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms.
