Why Call a New York Maritime Attorney After a Loved One Dies at Sea

You have a lot of important decisions to make if you've lost a loved one at sea. As you grieve, you must attend to other matters such as how your family will make up the lost income of your loved one who died. Will you be made to suffer the financial loss in addition to the emotional loss, or can a New York maritime attorney help you?

A New York Maritime Lawyer May Help - But First You Have to Call

A New York maritime accident lawyer may be able to help your family prevent financial hardship. We know that we cannot take away the emotional pain that you are experiencing, but we may be able to help you protect your legal right to a fair recovery.

It is important to call a New York maritime accident attorney as soon as you can because:

  • Different laws may apply to your case. In some cases the Death on the High Seas Act may apply, but in other cases other maritime laws may be applicable to your case.
  • If you don't file your claim on time, then you may be barred from seeking a legal recovery.
  • You do not need the stress of managing the case and making sure that you meet all of the requirements on your own.
