Florida Admiralty & Maritime Law

Trust your admiralty and maritime case to the skilled lawyer at the Law Offices of Michael F. Guilford, P.A. Listed below are a few of the types of matters which I confidently handle. To discuss any of these, or other, admiralty- and maritime-related issues with me, contact a lawyer at Law Offices of Michael F. Guilford, P.A., today.

  • Passenger Claims – I handle a range of claims involving the injuries passengers sustain while aboard a cruise ship. These cases include slip-and-fall accidents, dram shop liability, falling objects, shore excursion accidents, and tender operation accidents.
  • Seamen/Crew Claims – Injury, death, maintenance and cure, and wage claims made by crew members often fall under the jurisdiction of The Jones Act and General Maritime Law of the United States. I am fully versed in the language of these seaman’s rights and remedies and can effectively communicate their details and effects to our clients.
  • Cruise Ship Assault/Sexual Assault – I strive to provide thorough representation for individuals that have experienced a physical or sexual assault aboard a cruise ship. It is often possible to seek a claim against both the cruise ship company and/or the individual.
  • Yacht Crew Accidents – Yacht crews are entitled to the same protections as other seamen. I can help you seek action against the owner of the yacht to ensure that your injuries are compensated and/or your wages are paid according to guidelines set forth by The Jones Act and General Maritime Law of the United States.
  • Recreational Boating Injuries – Whether you were injured by a boat or Jet Ski, our firm can assist you in pursuing compensation for the injuries you suffered from the owner/operator of the vessel or the rental company.

I also handle specific admiralty and maritime cases that include elements of catastrophic injuries or wrongful death.
