Boating is a popular pastime in the Mid-Atlantic waterways, and unfortunately leads to many tragic accidents and injuries. Often, these accidents are caused by the negligence of another person. Inexperienced, inattentive, and intoxicated boat operators are leading causes of maritime accidents. When someone else’s negligence results in injuries or losses to you or a loved one, you have a legal right to compensation.
At Morris James, we have been helping victims of negligence get justice and compensation since our firm opened in in 1932. We have successfully challenged powerful opponents and insurance providers who have the resources and motivation to overwhelm injured victims, at a time when they are dealing with physical and emotional suffering, and mounting bills. We shoulder the burden for our injured clients. We deal with government agencies and insurance companies. We listen to the practical concerns and unique needs of each client so that we advise them about their legal rights and best course of action.
Our personal injury lawyers can help make the journey back to physical health and financial security easier for you. If you or a loved one has been injured in a boating accident, take a moment to fill out our online contact form or call 302.655.2599 to speak with a member of the experienced legal team at Morris James for a free, no-obligation consultation. We can help you recover the compensation you need and deserve.

- "I was always treated with promptness, courtesy, respect, and friendliness."
I enjoyed working with Ross. He was amazing. I was always treated with promptness, courtesy, respect, and friendliness. From start to finish, I did what was required of me and the firm did what was required. It was a pleasure having your firm represent me. A great relationship that received a wonderful result.
- "The group is knowledgeable about personal injury law and explained it to me fully, even if I did not understand they took their time to explain it so I would understand."
My phone calls and emails were always returned very quickly. I never had to call them, they were on point with my case. Always answered all of my questions, even if they were from Google. I would recommend this group to anyone they are friendly and easy to work with during a bad accident. The group is knowledgeable about personal injury law and explained it to me fully, even if I did not understand they took their time to explain it so I would understand.
- "Couldn't Ask for a Better Attorney for my Needs."
Kevin Healy and Tammy did a great job. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends.
- "Honesty and friendliness."
My attorney was down-to-earth, honest and friendly. She handled my case in a thorough and attentive manner. Would I recommend the Morris James Personal Injury Group to my family and friends? Absolutely!
- "I am truly grateful for all you have done for my son, Eric."
I am truly grateful for all you have done for my son, Eric. As you know, Eric suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in an automobile accident as a passenger in his own vehicle in October, 2008. As discussed at our first consultation, due to extenuating circumstances, there did not seem to be many options of personal injury compensation for Eric. However, due to your extensive insurance experience, you were able to obtain two insurance settlements for Eric. These two settlements give me peace of mind knowing that Eric has personal funds to meet his needs. As we know, insurance does not cover everything.
Working with you was such a pleasure. I was so impressed by your quick responses to my emails. I liked being able to call you directly and you (!) answered the phone, not a secretary. I never had to leave messages or play phone tag. How efficient and organized! If I have any future legal needs, I will surely call Morris James.
- "I was very comfortable in an uneasy situation."
Kylie was always very professional, courteous, prompt to respond and very helpful. I felt very comfortable when dealing with her. What I liked best about the PI Group was their promptness and they are very professional. I was very comfortable in an uneasy situation. I am sure this was a small case for the office, but the instructions with all involved did not reflect that.
- "The best is they speak Spanish."
The best is they speak Spanish. Angel is a very nice person and helpful. I wouldn’t change anything…great people, great service!
- "What I liked best was being treated as an equal."

- "From the beginning of my case, they listened and guided."
My attorney was Michael Owen and his paralegal was Madelyn. From the beginning of my case, they listened and guided. I have never gone through this or had a car accident before. My case for Mike and the firm I'm sure was definitely not big money, but they always made me feel valued and important, mainly through their frequent communication. Also, Mike was relatable - not a snob or aloof - great guy. Even though I'm old enough to be his mom, he never treated me in a dismissive manner. Really wonderful experience!

My wife and I had an excellent experience with Morris James LLP. If we have anyone that needs an injury attorney, we will definitely recommend them!
