Cruise Ship Accidents
Every year, thousands of passengers are injured on cruise ships. This includes the ship itself as well as accidents on tenders and cruise-sponsored excursions. Just because you were not actually on board the ship, it doesn’t mean you are not entitled to recover damages.
What is most important about cruise accidents (and what most injured passengers don’t know) is that the majority of cruise lines have a one year term limit for filing an accident claim aboard a cruise ship.
Additionally, cruise lines require that actions against them be filed in the United States District Court, Southern District Miami Division – i.e. Federal Court. Make sure you hire an experienced attorney like Joe Wagoner; one who has passed the rigid examinations required to practice in Federal Court.
Please don’t accept any offers made by any insurance company (or others) trying to settle your boat or cruise ship accident. Joe can help you obtain the settlement you truly deserve, or you pay no attorney fees.
