Florida Cruise Ship Injury Attorneys



Since 1979, our Florida cruise ship attorneys have represented individuals that have been seriously injured due to the negligence of ship employees or negligent design and use of equipment on the ships. Our cruise ship lawyers understand the hardships that a person injured in port or at sea experiences, often far away from home. A slip and fall injury is a horrible event; however the after math of paying the medical bills, recovering from surgery and lost wages can be worse. Our job as Florida cruise ship accident lawyers is to obtain maximum financial recovery for your pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, and past and future lost wages. We have handled Florida cruise ship injury claims against every major cruise line, which includes Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Celebrity. Princess, Disney, NCL, Seven Seas, Costa and Oceania.

Florida Cruise Ship Accident Cases Require Quick Action or Your Claim Could be Barred

It is important, particularly in cruise ship accident cases, to contact a Florida cruise ship lawyer immediately upon returning to port. The jurisdiction (the proper court to file a lawsuit against a cruise line) and the statute of limitations (the allowable time frame to file a lawsuit) are severely limited by most cruise lines. The ticket of passage, in the most cases, state the required notice provisions and the court you are required to use to seek compensation. Violation of any of these provisions, could forever eliminate any injury claim that a person may have. We always offer a free initial consultation, so we encourage you to contact us immediately to discuss how we can assist you.

Once we are retained, we immediately proceed with providing the proper notices required by the cruise line, and investigate the cruise ship incident, so that we can determine who is responsible for causing a person’s injuries. In order to make a financial recovery, we must prove that the cruise ship or cruise line, is at least partially responsible for causing the accident or injury. Even if a person or passenger is partially at fault, our cruise ship attorneys can still obtain a financial recovery to compensate you for any serious injuries. There are no fees or costs to hire our law firm unless we make a financial settlement or recovery for our client.

In almost every cruise ship accident, the cruise line attempts to avoid responsibility for paying damages. Our cruise ship attorneys have been battling these cruise lines for more than 30 years and we are familiar with all their tactics. Our lawyers deal with these cruise lines on a daily basis and we know what it takes to make them pay injury claims. We demand maximum payouts for all our clients, and will fight hard to get the best compensation possible.

We have handled numerous Florida cruise ship cases in which our clients sustained serious injuries while participating in a cruise ship excursion. Cruise ships organize and then sell these excursions, therefore the cruise ship has a duty to make sure the excursion operator will operate in a safe and reasonable manner. These cases can be difficult as most injuries that take place during a cruise ship excursion take place in a foreign country. The cruiseship will then argue that the claimant does not have a claim in the United States because their injury took place in a foreign country. Our Florida cruise ship accident lawyers have handled these complicated international law issues numerous times and have been able to recover money for our clients.
