How can I tell if my case falls under Admiralty Law?
Each case must be decided on its own merits, but if an accident occurred on any kind of vessel in a navigable body of water, it almost certainly will be covered by Admiralty Law.
What are the differences in benefits under Admiralty Law and regular State Law, assuming my accident happened on the job?
If I'm hurt on a barge being towed on one of the Inland Rivers, such as the
Arkansas, the Tenn-Tom Waterway, The Mississippi, etc., do my rights fall
under Admiralty Law?
If I'm hurt on an offshore drilling rig out in the Gulf of Mexico, or in an
inland bay of the Gulf Coast, do my rights fall under Admiralty Law?
Would Admiralty Law apply if an accident occurred involving a pleasure
craft, such as, for example, a group of friends out fishing or sailing, or
personal watercraft such as "Waverunners"?
