Cruise Line Claims Attorney Miami FL

A beautiful coral Reef and the calm of the ocean make you think of booking a cruise. The travel, the food, and the fun are all things to associate with booking a cruise. But what if your cruise experience or that of someone with you is interrupted by a serious injury or illness caused by the cruise lines carelessness? In fact, what if you seek medical treatment on board and the staff causes your condition or that of someone with you to become worse? What should you do?

And just as importantly, how should you do it? Falls, sickness, physical attacks, and other serious injuries suffered by passengers due to the cruise lines’ carelessness are governed by different rules than those on land. These rules are restricted as to where you must submit your legal claim and the time limit is very short.
