Sean M. Cleary represents clients injured in cruise ship accidents and admiralty accidents that happened outside the U.S.
One of the things that I think makes me an effective lawyer in these types of cases is that I've actually engaged in a lot of the activities where I represent clients.
In 2012, the Coast Guard registered 4515 accidents that involved 651 deaths, 3000 cases of injuries, and approximately $38 million dollars of damage to property as an effect of recreational boating accidents. The fatality count was 5.4 deaths per 100,000 registered recreational ships and represents a 12.9% decrease from 2011's death rate of 6.2 deaths per 100,000 registered recreational vessels. Compared to 2011, the number of accidents decreased 1.6%, the count of deaths decreased 14.1%, and the count of injuries decreased 2.6%. Almost 71% of all fatal boating accidents victims drowned, and of those, approximately 85% were not reported as wearing a life jacket. Operator inattention, operator lack of experience, improper lookout, machinery failure, and excessive speed rank as the top 5 primary responsible factors for accidents.
My wife and I were referred to Sean Cleary by another Attorney. He was very highly recommended and, I must say, very deservedly so. Sean is very diligent in his work; his preparation is phenomenal, and his presentations are something to behold. He is very accessible if you have any questions. He always takes the time to fully explain in language you can understand. We highly recommend anyone needing help...talk to Sean Cleary.
