We Welcome Maritime Accident Case Referrals

Godwin, Morris, Laurenzi & Bloomfield, P.C., is well-known for its niche practice in maritime/admiralty law, namely Jones Act claims and maritime torts. Our Memphis-based trial lawyers have successfully litigated maritime injury cases in Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi and surrounding states.

We welcome referrals from other personal injury attorneys or general practice firms who do not have the capacity to take on maritime cases. If you have a client who can benefit from our expertise, please contact our firm at 901-528-1702 to discuss arrangements.

Jones Act • Maritime Torts • Longshore Act

We are well-equipped to represent those injured on the water or in waterfront occupations:

  • Injured seamen – We represent crew members of riverboats and other commercial vessels in Jones Act claims for injuries on the job.
  • Injured longshoremen – We protect the rights of injured dock workers, ship repair and marine construction personnel in Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act claims.
  • Injured boaters – We litigate maritime tort claims on behalf of “civilian” victims of boating accidents, personal watercraft accidents, drownings and other personal injuries in navigable waters.

Jones Act claims or maritime tort lawsuits are more beneficial than filing regular workers’ compensation or personal injury claims. The damages and the statute of limitations are more generous. In some cases, these actions are the exclusive remedy available to your client. We know that these claims must be timely filed, thoroughly investigated and properly documented to get a good result.
