New York City Lawyers for Cruise Ship Accident Victims
The cruise ship industry has built its business on the image of a fun,
safe way to travel to exotic destinations worldwide. However, a cruise
ship can be a dangerous place and many passengers have been injured in
accidents caused by careless and intentional conduct of cruise ship employees
- Sexual assaults
- Fall down accidents
- Boating accidents
- Excursion accidents
The owners and operators of cruise ships have special duties under maritime
law to provide for the safety of their passengers. If they fail to fulfill
these duties, they are responsible to compensate the injured cruise ship
Were you injured while on a cruise?
Most passengers do not realize that their boarding pass is a legal contract
in which they have agreed to many limitations on their right to sue the
cruise line. Most boarding passes include a requirement that a claim be
filed in a very short period of time and that a lawsuit be filed within
a shorter period of time than usual. They often also include a limitation
on the place in which a lawsuit must be filed – known as venue.
While many cruise ships depart from New York, the venue limitations often
require that suit be filed in Florida or California. If you have been
injured on a cruise ship, it is imperative that you immediately seek advice from an experienced
personal injury lawyer that has been through this process before can be
invaluable in ensuring that the cruise ship submits to a proper investigation
and preserves evidence that may be vital to the success of the victim's case.
