Issues related to maritime law may become the subject of litigation. If a legal matter involves ocean regions and vessels, the knowledge and experience of an admiralty expert witness may be a vital resource for your case.
Admiralty law is a set of regulations and rules made to govern marine-related situations taking place within the oceans. Admiralty law (or maritime law, as it is also known) includes all matters related to the sea, such as navigation, ocean shipping, commerce, fishing, aquatics, ship handling, yachts, boats, small or large crafts, and other situations involving vessel operations.
Admiralty law is applicable to all types of business taking place in the ocean, whether it involves oil and gas, offshore drilling, gas piping, loading docks, cargo and shipping, towing operations, or any other maritime-set operation. As with all maritime operations, there are certain risks involved, especially when industrial equipment is in use. Any lawsuit brought about by offshore crane failures, pipeline damage, oil spill, anchor-handling operational failures, towing system failures, collisions between vessels or other types of machinery, weather-related damages, and other types of equipment failure will be subject to maritime law within the appropriate jurisdiction. Maritime professions, such as divers, coast guards, fishermen, or ship captains, all operate under the rules of admiralty law when they are out at sea.
Cases involving admiralty law can be complex, as any lawsuit related to the ocean falls within a set of regulations that are unique.
