Cruise ship vacations are supposed to be relaxing and enjoyable. However, just like any vacation, accidents can happen when you least expect them to. If you have sustained an injury during a cruise, we can assist you with your claim.
Cruise tickets normally contain a forum selection clause; that is, a clause naming the jurisdiction in which legal action can be commenced to enforce your claim. Most cruise lines select Florida. We have an arrangement with a Florida law firm to pursue these claims. Cruise ship injury claims generally have a one-year statute of limitations. The cruise ship ticket will also impose a requirement that written notice be given to the cruise line within a specified time, usually six months.
Our team knows this process and can lead you to the right cruise accident lawyer in Florida to assist you with your cruise accident claim. Cruise lines know which Florida lawyers will litigate these claims, so it is very important to obtain the right law firm.
