Maritime Injury Lawyers in Miami, FL
Over 200 Years' Combined Experience in Cases Nationwide
Maritime injuries are distinct from the personal injury cases handled on land. The way liability is handled on ships and docks requires training and experience in a unique section of the law: admiralty and maritime law. The maritime injury lawyers at Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A. have experience handling cases for employees injured at sea.
Our South Florida personal injury attorneys provide our clients with:
- 200+ years of collective legal experience
- Compassionate attorney-client relationships
- Rigorous and thorough case preparation
- High-level focus from a limited caseload
- 24-hour access to our attorneys for any issue
- Board certified legal expertise and insight
Workers who are injured while at sea are covered under the Jones Act, a law that protects their right to hold ship owners accountable for the negligence of the captain and other crew members. Under the Jones Act, workers can pursue compensation for lost wages, medical treatment, ongoing care, and even pain and suffering for severe and life-altering injuries.
If you've been injured while at sea, please contact our firm online or call our nationwide maritime lawyers at (305) 770-6335. We have represented clients from Indonesia, England, France, the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas, and beyond.
Proven Experience with Maritime Law
At Stewart Tilghman Fox Bianchi & Cain, P.A., our Jones Act attorneys have represented claims against some of the largest marine employers on the water-cruise line companies. We've successfully held businesses like Carnival Cruises and Cruise Line Company accountable for unsafe working conditions or negligent action.

In one of our most notable cases, we represented an Indonesian man who suffered a severe brain injury while working on a cruise liner. The ship's physician did not diagnose the injury correctly, leaving it untreated. As a result, the man was left in a vegetative state requiring costly 24-hour care. We represented him and his family, eventually compelling the cruise line to offer an $8 million settlement. The settlement will now provide for our client and his family for the rest of their lives.
