The law concerning negligence causing injury. Maritime law covers seamen while assigned to an ocean going ship. This becomes complicated since some offshore drilling rigs qualify as ships. The law for sailors is similar to that of FELA for railroad workers. Work on ships can often be even more dangerous than railroad work. Like FELA this type of litigation has its own unusual terminology and unique law so many attorneys are not well equipped to handle such cases.
