Representing Those Injured In U.S. Waters And Beyond

Injury and death can occur in many ways at sea, in a harbor or on navigable inland waters. At Banning LLP, our lawyers have more than 30 years of experience representing clients who are injured or who have lost family members in accidents ranging from boat fires to collisions to diving accidents.

Our attorneys have deep experience handling personal injury and wrongful death claims under the Jones Act, the Death on the High Seas Act, the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act, and other maritime and admiralty laws.

From our office in Rancho Santa Fe, California, our attorneys deal with injuries occurring on all types of vessels on multiple oceans, harbors and inland waters, including the Pacific Basin, the Gulf of Mexico, the Colorado River, and inland waters such as Lake Mead, Lake Mohave, Lake Havasu and Lake Powell. Our clients include seamen, recreational boaters, cruise ship passengers, longshoremen and other harbor workers, commercial fishermen, charter parties, oil and gas workers, commercial and pleasure divers, and recreational boaters of all nationalities.

Protecting Every One Of Your Rights

Maritime law is different from state general liability law and there are many traps for unseasoned lawyers. For example, ship owners have certain defenses under the Limitations of Liability Act and other laws that lesser-trained lawyers may not be aware of.

Our attorneys will protect your rights and explore all possible sources of recovery, including insurance, product liability claims, negligent repair claims and 905(b) actions against vessel owners.

Contingency fee representation: We represent injured clients on a contingency fee basis, advancing all costs needed to prove your case. If we are unable to obtain compensation for you, you will owe no fees or costs.
