Florida attorneys with experience against all major cruise lines!
Miami Cruise Ship Injury Attorneys / Florida Maritime Law Attorneys
Injuries on a cruise are often the hardest to deal with. You are on vacation and as a result of negligence, you have been injured. Not only is your vacation ruined, you are also in the middle of the ocean or in a foreign country and unable to deal with your injury the way you should. In addition to having to deal with your recovery, cruise companies do not make the process very smooth. There are many things you should know about the handling of your case and injury. Call us at 800-337-7755 for more information and a free consultation.
How do I file my claim?
When you go on a cruise, you sign a contract. Your contract most likely has a time limit on the handling of claims. For example, in Carnival’s case, you have six months from your injury to notify Carnival Corporation of your accident. To file a claim, you would have to notify the cruise company, most often in writing, of your accident within a certain time period. If your case needs litigation, you will have a statute of limitations. If your lawsuit is not filed within the allotted time period, your case may be barred forever.
Why do I need a Florida attorney?
Per your contract, your case is to be brought in a specific jurisdiction. For example, Royal Caribbean requires that your case be handled in Florida. Several cruises require that the lawsuit be brought in Miami-Dade County, Florida, Broward County, Florida, Miami, or Ft. Lauderdale. Given the complexities of Cruise Ship Accident statutes, it is important to seek an attorney who can help you navigate through the Courts and will fight for your rights. The Law Offices of Jason Turchin can help!
