We Are Devoted To Establishing Their Liability And Your Damages
West Virginia ship accident attorney JB Akers can help determine whether the Jones Act or other maritime law applies to your claim.
The major rivers in West Virginia are navigable, so federal admiralty jurisdiction can cover many cases involving both recreational and commercial accidents on the water.
Our lawyer’s experience with complex admiralty laws combined with proof of another’s liability can help us establish your right to compensation against a wide range of potential defendants in complex cases involving boating, shipyard, pier and other work-related accidents.
Among the parties who can be held to account are the:
- Pilot or skipper of the craft on which you were a passenger
- Operator of the vessel that collided with your own boat
- Negligent outfitter or repair service
- Army Corps of Engineers for improper dredging or channel markings
Because our objective is to maximize the value of your claim, our ship accident attorney makes an exhaustive analysis of all of your litigation options against all potential defendants.
We devote to make sure that you are receiving the proper medical care and therapeutic services, we document the full extent of your injuries and prognosis for recovery. The injuries most characteristic of boat accidents are hypoxia, traumatic or acquired brain injuries, fractures, burns, and amputation.
