Cruise Ship Injuries
Cruise ships are considered "common carriers" under maritime law, meaning that they have a legal duty to provide safe transportation for their passengers and crew members. If a cruise ship company fails in this duty and someone is injured as a result, the company can be held liable for damages. However, proving liability can be difficult, and the cruise ship companies are often represented by large and experienced legal teams.

They will also be familiar with the specific laws and regulations that apply to cruise ships, and can help you understand your rights and options. Maritime law differs from Florida law when it comes to personal injuries, so hiring a maritime attorney is important to ensure your full recovery.
Additionally, maritime attorneys are experienced in handling the jurisdiction and venue issues that arise in cruise ship injury cases. They can help you determine the most appropriate place to file your claim and make sure that your case is heard in a court that is favorable to you. A maritime attorney will be able to negotiate with the cruise line and its insurance company on your behalf to reach a fair settlement, even if the case does not go to trial. They will be able to help you with the complex process of documenting your injuries and losses and ensure that you receive the full compensation you are entitled to.
