Harris Moure is one of the few law firms in the Northwest to have brought cases that established higher legal standards to protect injured passengers.

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.

Led by maritime attorney Charles Moure, our cruise injury practice helps passengers act swiftly and effectively to achieve fair compensation for their physical, psychological or financial damages. Though we always attempt to resolve our clients’ claims through settlement, our experienced legal team stands ready to represent you in court through aggressive litigation.

Harris Moure is one of the most experienced law firms in the country when it comes to cruise injury litigation.
