Act Quickly; Contact Greenberg, Stone & Urbano Today
If you are injured on a cruise ship, it is essential that you retain a qualified attorney as soon as possible. Most cruise lines take steps to limit their liability in the event of passenger accidents. One common way to limit liability is to include a "statute of limitations" in the fine print of your boarding ticket, so that if you fail to file suit within a certain time of your accident, your claim could be waived. This time period could be one year or shorter.
Another tactic is to include a choice of jurisdiction and venue clause, requiring lawsuits to be filed in a certain court. The window to act is typically short, so even though negotiating a settlement is often preferred, it is likely necessary to file suit to preserve all legal options.
Beyond preserving your case, quick action is required to preserve evidence. Our Miami cruise ship accident attorneys will need to document any unsafe conditions onboard your cruise ship. They will often interview witnesses or crew members as soon as possible while memories are fresh. Our legal team can also help you organize and keep all ticket information, receipts, medical documentation, communications with the cruise line, and many other records about your cruise ship incident.
Seeking immediate medical attention is also very important, as cruise ships may try to defend themselves by claiming you failed to properly report your injuries.
