Handling Maritime Law Injuries and Injuries Occurring at Sea
Living on an island means that ships and boats are a regular part of our economy. We have freighters that deliver goods for sale, cruise ships that bring tourism to our shores and various different activities that visitors can engage in while they are here that involve boats. When a serious accident occurs while you are employed by one of these industries or you are a participant in one of these activities, you have the right to be compensated for any injuries you sustain as a result.
Turbin Chu Heidt handles maritime law cases for sailors and other employees of the shipping industry, including employees on cruise ships. We also handle personal injury cases for tourists who are injured while on vacation. We can represent you for any kind of injury at sea involving:
- Cruise line accidents
- Sailboat rentals
- Tourist boats
- Harbor and island cruises
- Fishing expeditions
- Maritime law claims
- Jones Act claims
- Longshore workers' claims
Honolulu Boat Accident Attorneys
We will thoroughly investigate your accident and look for all possible negligent parties in order to pursue the maximum compensation for your injuries. We will interview witnesses, collect reports and work with experts in order to show fault on the part of the company you worked for or had purchased a cruise or trip from.
We recommend that people who were injured while on vacation call us directly instead of contacting a lawyer in their home state, who will then have to work through us in order to try the case. We know the laws in Hawaii that govern tourism and licensing. We will use our knowledge to your best advantage as we zealously advocate for you.
