A: It's difficult to answer the question based on the information in the post - Admiralty/Maritime is included as a category, and it would be good to have an attorney with insight into maritime law if the matter involves vessels or activities on navigable waters. But there are other categories as well, and the connection to maritime law isn't fully clear, based on the facts at hand. One option could be to repost with additional information, maybe narrowing down the categories to the most relevant one or two. But if the matter involves confidential information you don't want to present on a public forum, another option could be to reach out to attorneys. Good luck

A: Tim is right. If you were hurt on a vessel or adjacent to the water, you might consider reaching out directly to a maritime lawyer. Maritime law can be tricky, so it's best to talk to an experienced lawyer one-on-one.
