Cruise ship accident
If you have had an unfortunate accident on a Cruise ship, you need to contact a cruise ship accident lawyer at the earliest, so that you can a complete knowledge of your rights and obligations. In most of cruise ship accidents, the victims have only one year to file a lawsuit, and hence it is important that you have all the information about the time line for filing a lawsuit and the location from where it needs to be filed.
Because of such restrictions and legalities, it is necessary that you meet an experienced cruise ship accident lawyer and show him terms and conditions mentioned on the cruise ship. The terms and conditions mention a number of points which as a passenger you could have overlooked while booking the tickets.
By making a booking with the cruise line, you would have already agreed to the location where you will need to file your lawsuit. Some cruise operators may have California as their location and many will have mentioned Miami, Florida as the location for filing a cruise ship accident lawsuit. Each line operator has different terms and conditions mentioned on their ticket.
When a passenger books a cruise, he or she is paying for a complete package including accommodation, food, entertainment, safety measures etc. But we all know that cruise ships are not always safe. Over the years, hundreds of passengers have been victims of serious injuries or have ended being assaulted while on board. But these cruise ships are owned and operated from other countries and hence they require their passengers to sign long contracts, curtailing their legal options back in their home country. To make matters worse there are many loopholes in the international maritime law which can protect passengers or employees against any kind of prosecution for physical or sexual assault. Therefore if you have been hurt on board a cruise ship, you will need to consult an experienced lawyer with a strong knowledge of both the maritime law, the state and federal laws, to help you get justice.
