Maritime and Personal Injury Law

Representing Injured Clients and Their Families

Under U.S. law, seamen are a privileged class of workers who are entitled to special protection. At the law firm of Banning LLP, we do everything in our power to assist and protect the rights of seamen and their family members. Our lawyers also represent individuals who have been injured on land.

Our maritime and admiralty practice is international. Over the past 30 years, we have represented clients throughout the western United States, the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Basin. Through our office in American Samoa, we have effectuated vessel arrests in distant ports such as Pago Pago Harbor and Guam. We also represent clients injured on inland navigable waters such as the Colorado River, Lake Mead, Lake Mohave and Lake Powell.

In addition to handling maritime personal injury and death claims, our lawyers handle maritime property damage claims such as those arising from sinking vessels, fires and explosions. We also have significant expertise with marine insurance claims and charter party disputes, and we have represented vessel financing companies, shipping companies, ship brokers and marine insurance brokers in litigation in California and elsewhere.

Our lawyers are experienced in vessel arrests, vessel mortgage foreclosures and seamen wage claims. If you or your company is involved in any type of maritime dispute, we can help.
