Maritime Boating Lawyer | Levin Papantonio | Florida
Maritime Lawsuit

State and federal laws regarding maritime and pleasure boating injuries are complex and depend upon various circumstances, such as the type of vessel; how the vessel was being used; where it was being operated; whether injury or death occurred; and whether the injured person was an employee of the vessel.

Some of the most common forms of actions involving personal injury on the water, include:

  1. Jones Act Seaman
  2. Cruise Ship Injuries
  3. Death on the High Seas
  4. Private Pleasure Boating Accidents
  5. Unseaworthiness Claims

What Does It Cost

We provide absolutely free confidential consultations, and if we are fortunate enough for you to hire us, we never will charge you any fees or costs unless you first recover.

The contingency fee we charge ranges from 20% to 40% depending upon how much we recover for you, and this is true whether your case is in Pensacola or in another city or state.

Our fee should be identical or less to what other lawyers are charging, especially in Florida, as the amount is controlled by The Florida Bar. This is true whether your lawyer has never handled a maritime case or whether it has been a focus of their practice for more than 60 years, as with our law firm.
