The Fort Lauderdale maritime lawyers of Brais Law Firm routinely handle cruise ship passenger injuries and crew, boating, yachting, scuba diving, personal injury and death claims in and throughout Florida. With Ft. Lauderdale and Port Everglades being just minutes North of our Miami office, our firm is well situated to represent clients who have sustained serious injuries in all types of accidents that have taken place in the seaports and navigable waters of the South East Florida region.
Maritime law governs all accidents that occur on the Atlantic Ocean, in the Gulf of Mexico, and on Florida’s inland and coastal navigable waterways. This includes recreational boating, yachting and cruise ship accidents as well as accidents involving maritime workers.
There is not one single law that determines accident victims’ legal rights. Rather, “maritime law” is made up of multiple international treaties, federal statutes and federal court decisions. As such, maritime law is extremely complex, and not many lawyers have the knowledge and experience required to represent injured passengers, crewmembers and their families effectively. Keith Brais has been a board certified admiralty and maritime attorney in Florida since 1996. He has helped his clients recover millions of dollars in financial compensation. Several of Mr. Brais’s cases have helped shape maritime law, and he is recognized as a leading attorney in the field of maritime injury and wrongful death litigation. If you have a maritime law claim in Fort Lauderdale, you can trust Mr. Brais to help you fight to win the compensation you deserve.
