Accidents in Maryland Ports & Locations

Maryland is one of the oldest U.S. states, and the Port of Baltimore is among the longest-serving ports in America. From the Eastern Shore to the Inner Harbor, Maryland is known for its water access, and many workers in the maritime industry call Maryland home.

Maryland is also one of the East Coast’s prime cruise locations. Several cruise lines operate out of Maryland or visit Maryland’s shores on their trips along the U.S. East Coast.

If you live in Maryland or were injured on a cruise ship that visited Maryland, our lawyers can help you assert your legal rights after an accident on the water. We represent passengers, crew members, longshoremen, harbor workers, other individuals, and families after serious and fatal maritime accidents. This includes accidents involving cruise ships, cargo ships, barges, and other vessels docking at:

  • Port Annapolis
  • Port of Baltimore
  • Port of Cambridge
  • Somers Cove Marina (Crisfield)
  • City Yacht Basin (Havre de Grace)
  • Naval Air Station Patuxent River (Lexington Park)
  • Solomons Island Harbor

Cruise Lines and Destinations for Departures from Maryland

Maryland’s reputation within the cruise industry is growing quickly. Currently, the cruise lines that have ships based in Maryland and visit Maryland cities as ports of call include:

  • AIDA Cruises
  • Carnival Cruise Lines
  • Royal Caribbean
  • MS Amadea

Cruise ships departing from Maryland visit destinations along the U.S. East Coast and beyond. For example, some of the most popular destinations for cruises leaving the Port of Baltimore include:

  • Bahamas
  • Bermuda
  • Panama Canal
  • Eastern Caribbean (Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos, Half Moon Cay Princess Cays)
  • Southern Caribbean (St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands, St. Maarten, St. Lucia)
  • Canada
  • New England (Bar Harbor, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Portland)

Were You Injured on a Cruise Ship?

While cruising can be fun, it can also be dangerous. Unfortunately, despite several recent high-profile catastrophes, health and safety risk onboard cruise ships remain common. Embarking, disembarking, taking tenders to shore, and participating in shore excursions are all common causes of cruise-related injuries as well. If you live in Maryland or were injured in a cruise ship accident while visiting Maryland, our lawyers can help you assert your legal rights.

Were You Injured in Another Maritime Accident in Maryland?

Along with representing cruise passengers and their families, we also represent maritime workers in Maryland based both onshore and on the water. If you have been seriously injured in a maritime accident, our lawyers can help you file a claim under the Jones Act, Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), or other applicable laws. Strict deadlines apply, so it is important that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.
