While many attorneys are skilled at handling Miami personal injury claims, the combination of maritime and personal injury law can make cruise ship accident cases more complex than most. At Dante Law Firm, P.A., we are experienced in both aspects, meaning we can provide the expert legal guidance and support you require. As cruise ship accidents tend to be subject to a relatively short statute of limitations, if you have been injured in one, you should seek legal representation from a Miami cruise ship accident attorney as soon as you possibly can.
A cruise ship has a duty of care towards its passengers and, as this is considered a special duty, it extends beyond what is normally expected under a duty of care. For example, the cruise ship crew have an obligation to deliver their passengers safely to shore and must exercise the highest level of care to avoid any passengers experience physical harm. If you or a loved one have been injured on board a cruise ship, you may be able to file for damages against the owner of the cruise ship, the company who chartered the trip you took, the company operating the cruise ship in question, or the entity that sold you the ticket for your trip. A Miami cruise ship accident attorney from Dante Law Firm can advise on the best way to proceed once we have discussed the specifics of your cruise ship accident with you.
While working as Miami cruise ship accident attorneys, our legal experts have successfully recovered damages and compensation for the following types of cases:
The terms and conditions of your cruise ship passage may set out some limitations and conditions in which a claim holding the cruise ship liable for injuries or illnesses may be filed. While the cruise ship has a liability to protect your safety, you also have a liability to read and understand these limitations. For example, you may have agreed to inform the cruise ship operator of your intention to file for damages, in writing, within a specified time frame, which can tend to be shorter than the statute of limitations generally is. You may also be limited in terms of which states you can file a lawsuit in.
If you have been injured in a cruise ship accident, it is essential that you seek legal representation from a Miami attorney who knows what they are looking for when it comes to these terms and conditions.
