Boating Accident Claims: Does Maritime Law or Negligence Law Apply?
The simple answer to this question is that either might apply. Deciding which one will be better, given the unique facts and circumstances of your case, is where having the knowledge and skill of an experienced trial lawyer really pays off.
As the result of more than 20 years of experience each in the state and federal courts of Maryland,attorneys Karen Sussman and Howard Simcox have developed a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies of both Maryland negligence law AND maritime law. Boating accident victims also benefit from the fact that having defended insurance companies for years, we can offer keen insights into the way insurers evaluate and defend these claims. We use that knowledge and plan our strategies accordingly.
Similarly, because our firm has proven itself to be more than willing to take boating accident cases to trial, we enter settlement talks in a much stronger position. In fact, in one case that involved an amputation injury — we were able to secure a policy-limit settlement on behalf of our client in just three weeks.
