Taking a cruise for your vacation can be an exciting way to see exotic new sites. However, a fun cruise can quickly turn into tragedy when passengers or employees are injured onboard. If you have been injured on a cruise ship, you need a lawyer who is dedicated, understanding and knowledgeable in personal injury and maritime law.

Your cruise ticket will have specific information regarding the time limits for bringing a claim and where you must file your suit. If you have been injured on a cruise ship, it is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible so you do not miss the deadline to file your claim.
I have helped clients secure damages for their pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses when they have been injured in a cruise ship accident. I will work to bring a claim against the shipowner.
If you are a crew member or an employee who was injured in a cruise accident, you may have a claim against your employer under the Jones Act.
The Jones Act can apply to crew members and employees whose work on the vessel contributes to the navigation or the purpose of the mission. Under the act, these employees are known as seamen, and they are able to recover compensation for their injuries greater than what workers’ compensation could provide.
