Cruise Ship Accidents

Representing clients in Miami-Dade County, Broward County (Ft. Lauderdale area), Palm Beach County, Monroe County (Key Largo to Key West), Lee County (Ft. Myers) and throughout the State of Florida who were injured on a cruise ship. This includes out-of-state clients who must bring any legal action against the owner of the cruise ship in the State of Florida as per the owner’s policies stated on the ticket.

Our firm represents clients in the South Florida area who have suffered personal injuries or lost loved ones in accidents at sea or in the port itself caused by the negligence in the operation of the cruise ship or in allowing unsafe conditions to exist. Many factors may contribute to an accident at sea including these:

  1. Poor seamanship.
  2. Failure to warn of danger of movement during storms.
  3. Lack of adequate guard rails.
  4. Crew failure to give physical assistance to passengers who need it as in boarding or in disembarkation.
  5. Providing inadequate or substandard medical services.

Our personal injury attorneys will discuss your situation and go over options available to you. It is important to note the cruise ship’s policies will generally require that any legal action be commenced in the State specified on the passenger ticket even if the injured passenger resides in another state or country. Florida is often listed as that state since many cruises originate from ports in the State of Florida.
