From the moment you book a cruise, your head is filled with visions of the good times ahead. Images of sun, fun, relaxing, and shore excursions in exotic ports will get you through the time between booking and departure. The one thing most people never envision when daydreaming about their vacation, however, is an injury, but accidents happen all the time on cruise ships! Just a second of inattention or a sudden roll of the waves and you could be hurt by simply walking around on board the ship, not to mention the accidents that can occur while on shore excursions.
In the case of accidents, the cruise lines have many restrictions about how a cruise ship injury should be handled. You’ve probably never noticed the seven to ten pages worth of restrictions that come with your cruise ship tickets, or the limitations and requirements that someone must follow if they are involved in a cruise ship accident or injury. Often, people think they can handle their injury claim by themselves, but unless you are someone who is very familiar with various state, federal and maritime laws that may apply in cruise ship accident claims, it is extremely easy to lose your rights to make a claim.
If you are involved in an injury or accident while on your cruise, do yourself a favor and hire an experienced Florida cruise ship injury attorney. Not just any attorney will do either, due to the aforementioned complex laws that apply to cruise ship accident claims.
