Experienced Lafayette Maritime Attorney

Louisiana maritime law exclusively governs the issues and activities that occur at sea or in any navigable waters. Maritime law include violations of maritime rules and regulations, seaboard accidents and injuries, commerce and contractual relations, as well as other related activities that occur at sea. In the United States, jurisdiction over maritime law is held at the federal court level.

The courts and Congress seek to create a uniform body of maritime law both nationally and internationally in order to facilitate commerce. The federal courts derive their exclusive jurisdiction over this field from the Judiciary Act of 1789 and from Article III of the U.S. Constitution. Congress regulates maritime partially through the Commerce Clause. American maritime law formerly applied only to American tidal waters. It now extends to any waters navigable within the United States for interstate or foreign commerce. In such waters, maritime jurisdiction includes matters not involving interstate commerce, including recreational boating.

Lafayette maritime lawyers are professional and knowledgeable in understanding the details, facts, complications, and circumstances that arise in a maritime case.
