Miami maritime and admiralty Robert C. Gross, P.A., provides legal services in the following areas:
- MARITIME CLAIMS - Any of a variety of different claims governed by the very specific body of law peculiar to the rights of seamen and shipboard passengers, to transportation by water, whether on the high seas, in bays or harbors, in rivers and on lakes and other navigable waterways.
- FEDERAL AND STATE ADMIRALTY CLAIMS - Lawsuits brought in either federal or state court that are governed by general and statutory maritime law. Typically, these claims involve injuries to passengers or crew members aboard ships in navigation, but may apply to recreational watercraft accidents as well.
- CREW MEMBER CLAIMS - These are cases brought by seamen against their employer, and the owners or operators of the vessels upon which they serve, for personal injuries, wrongful death and contract disputes of one kind or another, including wage claims.
- CRUISE PASSENGER CLAIMS - These cases usually deal with personal injury or wrongful death claims arising when passengers are injured aboard cruise ships.
- MAJOR PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS - Claims made by persons who suffer significant injuries and damages in some sort of accident aboard ship.
- PRIVATE AND PLEASURE WATER CRAFT TORT CLAIMS - These cases involve injuries sustained on private or pleasure watercraft. They are usually based on negligence.
- RAILROAD EMPLOYEE CLAIMS - Although unrelated to navigable waterways these claims are governed by the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA), a federal statute which provide for damages for railway workers who are injured due to unsafe working conditions. Many of the rules and other legal requirements are very similar to maritime and admiralty law cases.
