A cruise should be a fun bit of diversion – an opportunity to rest and relax on the open sea and in an exotic foreign locale. Tens of millions of Americans take cruises every year expecting just that.
Unfortunately, while many cruise ships are well run, too many of these Americans are hurt or suffer illnesses while on these cruise liners. While a cruise line isn't responsible for every single injury that occurs aboard its ships, it is responsible for the safety and well-being of its passengers.
Many cruise lines cut costs by cutting corners, which puts passengers in dangers. Our personal injury lawyers have helped many victims of cruise ship accidents, and we can do the same for you.

Types of Cases
There's a lot that can go wrong on a massive cruise liners. Despite this, cruise ship companies are expected to provide a safe, hygienic environment for passengers. A failure to do so can expose a company to significant liability.
Our cruise ship accident lawyers have pursued cases related to:
- Avoidable illnesses aboard ship
- Slip and fall accidents
- Inadequate security resulting in violent crime
- Fire or other catastrophic events
These cases can be quite complicated, and your ability to file suit is limited by the fine print of your ship ticket. Cruise lines have limited the amount of your time to have to file a suit- you have just 180 days after an accident to provide notice of your claim to the cruise line.
As such, it's important that you move quickly. Don't hesitate to contact our lawyers as soon as possible after your accident. We'll be happy to discuss your claim at a free initial consultation.
