Cruise Injury Overiew

For millions of vacationers, a cruise can be the getaway of a lifetime. But between their unfamiliar settings and unpredictable conditions, cruises can present numerous opportunities for personal injury. Aware of these hazards, cruise companies often seek to dissuade or even prevent injured passengers from taking legal action. Cruise injury can be a complex and daunting area of law—but it’s where we’re in our element. We know your rights and we will fight to defend them.

Why You Should Take Action

What are some reasons to take immediate action regarding your cruise injury claim?

  • Time to bring action expires within one year from DOI (date of incident)
  • Cruise lines aggressively work to "get out in front" the moment you are injured
  • Recollection of incident fades with time
  • Cruise line will undershoot your injuries, offering low settlements; attempt to dissuade you from taking action
