About Our Miami Maritime Lawyers
At any given time, there are many cruise ships coming and in and out of ports all over the world. Unfortunately, not every day at sea is “smooth sailing,” and accidents happen frequently as a result of negligent or reckless conduct by various parties. In order to recover compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and other losses resulting from a cruise ship accident, a victim or their family usually must be able to show that the defendant acted negligently.
Passengers who are seeking to assert claims against cruise ship companies, such as Carnival, Royal Caribbean, or Norwegian, may have a contractual obligation created through the ticket sales process to file any personal injury claims that they may have in the courts of Miami-Dade County. This makes it especially important to consult a Miami maritime lawyer. To learn how our attorneys can help, please contact us for a free case review.
