Protecting People who Have Been Injured in Maritime Accidents

If you have been injured or lost a loved one in a work or recreational accident on or near the water, it is important to seek advice from a New Jersey maritime lawyer who is knowledgeable in maritime law. These cases are governed by a complex web of federal and state laws and recovering damages can be very different than standard personal injury cases. Brais Law Firm offers a team of attorneys with extensive experience litigating maritime injury and wrongful death cases. Our legal team has been helping individuals and families impacted by maritime accidents recover the compensation they deserve for more than 26 years. We are recognized as an authority in the field of admiralty and maritime law and have handled more than 1,000 claims in this highly specialized area of the law. Our maritime attorneys represent clients who have been injured on cruise ships, boats, vessels and other maritime structures on or near the Port of Bayonne, as well as harbors and ports throughout the state of New Jersey.

Port of Bayonne (Cape Liberty)

The City of Bayonne is located in Hudson County, New Jersey on a three-mile peninsula between Newark and Upper New York bays. The city has served as a center for the oil refining industry since 1875 and offers extensive shipyards and docks along its 9-mile waterfront. In 2004, Royal Caribbean International moved its vessels from New York’s cruise terminal to the Cape Liberty Cruise Port. This cruise port is located at the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor, which is the former Bayonne Military Ocean Terminal. Currently, Royal Caribbean International’s Anthem of the Seas and Adventure of the Seas, along with Celebrity Cruise Lines’ Celebrity Summit set sail from the Cape Liberty Cruise Port.

New Jersey Maritime Injury Lawyers Handling Cruise Ship and Other Accident Claims

New Jersey’s Port of Bayonne, along with harbors and terminals across the state, are busy places where catastrophic accidents can occur. In many cases these accidents are caused by the negligence of cruise ship operators. Passengers who have suffered personal injuries while traveling on a cruise ship or those who have been the victims of sexual assault or rape deserve to be fairly compensated for their injuries. These cases are complicated, and the cruise lines are backed by teams of powerful lawyers who will fight to protect their corporate clients from liability.

At Brais Law Firm, we know how to handle difficult cases. We are very familiar with the various tactics and defenses cruise lines use to avoid legal responsibility and we will vigorously pursue all available remedies available in a case. Our New Jersey maritime attorneys also represent crew members who work onboard cruise ships, harbor and dock workers and other employees in the maritime industry. We are accomplished professionals who know how to handle Jones Act, Longshore Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA) and other highly specialized maritime law claims.
