It takes a special kind of lawyer to handle the work of a maritime case. With accidents that happen thousands of miles from land, and days, weeks, or even months passing before an injured person can disembark and seek legal help, gathering evidence to build an ironclad case is no easy task. Hurdles that are often straightforward on dry land can become exponentially more complex at sea.
Read here as Adam explains the countless obstacles that can make a maritime case much more complex than one on land and why you should only trust the best of the best to handle maritime legal cases.
