One of the most complex aspects of maritime law is jurisdiction. Admiralty jurisdiction is founded on Article 3, Section 2, of the U.S. Constitution, but in many cases it can be difficult to understand where a maritime claim should be heard and which laws will affect the claim. While generally, maritime cases, can only be heard in federal court, some maritime claims, such as those involving local issues and the Jones Act, can be heard in state courts. An admiralty law attorney can help you understand which laws apply to your case and where it may be heard.
At Herman, Herman & Katz, we have an intimate understanding of admiralty law, especially as it pertains to the safety and health of seamen, longshoremen, and other maritime workers. We are here to assist injured workers and their families, whether the incident took place off the coast of Louisiana, off another state coast, or anywhere in the world.
