Helping Injured Cruise Ship Passengers
Caribbean cruise ship ports are expected to welcome more than nine million visitors this year —a record capacity. The cruising industry has shown no signs of slowing down. In fact, countries like Asia have begun preparing their ports to accommodate ships like the Allure of the Seas and Oasis of the Seas – the two largest cruise ships in the world – in order benefit from the booming market.
Cruise ship vacations offer a getaway for families that requires little planning and a lot of adventure. As the popularity of cruising grows, so does the likelihood of accidents. Bad things can, and do, happen on vacation.
When accidents occur on a cruise ship it is imperative to take the proper steps to ensure you protect the evidence and follow the proper channels to take legal action. Our lawyers have seen cruise ship reports for drowning children, sexual assault of crew and passengers and missing people. If you have sustained an injury on a cruise ship, you should immediately contact an attorney for representation.

Consult with a maritime investigator after your injury to determine if you should move forward with a case.. We can also be reached from overseas and offer all clients a free case evaluation.
Maritime law is complex and injuries that occur on the ocean differ from typical injury cases. For example, maritime law dictates that when a death occurs on the high seas (beyond three miles from shore) surviving family members can sue for financial loss, but not pain and suffering.
In addition the industry has very short statute of limitations, requiring passengers to notify the cruise line of a potential claim within a six-month period. The ticket you purchased from the cruise line may also dictate where the lawsuit must be filed.
An experienced lawyer can help you make sense of the intricacies of maritime law and can explain how they relate to you and your unique situation.
