Why Choose Our Firm?

Our lawyers have extensive experience representing both passengers and crew members who have sustained injuries at sea while onboard cruise ships or other vessels.

Injuries that occur on the high seas are very different than those that take place while on land. Cruise injuries to both passengers and crewmembers can be extremely severe – if not catastrophic – often becoming life-changing incidents or even fatalities. Maritime cases may be difficult to contend, given that cruise ships always include fine print in their cruise tickets and contracts, but with the help of a cruise ship injury lawyer, claims by injured passenger and crew can be brought forward successfully.

With over 80 years of combined experience in assisting victims and loved ones of those involved in cruise ship injury accidents, our injury lawyers will offer you superior legal counsel to ensure you obtain the maximum recovery for your case. Having already achieved several successful verdicts for those involved in cruise ship accidents, our law firm will ensure that you and your loved ones obtain the full extent of the benefits you deserve for your pain and suffering. You will know you chose to work with the right cruise ship injury lawyer when you have our law firm on your side fighting for your rights.

Achieving a favorable recovery for a maritime personal injury or fatality case requires lawyers that have specific knowledge of the laws that govern maritime matters. These types of cases can be difficult due to the advantages cruise ship companies have, including their non-disclosure policies that prevent them from releasing the names of those who are hurt, go missing, or who sustain fatal injuries, as well as their arguments that courts in the United States have no jurisdiction over what transpires over international waters, or their general negligence and lack of responsibility for dealing with injured crewmembers and passengers. Our lawyers understand the tactics cruise lines use, and have a proven track record of overcoming these obstacles in order to ensure the victims are the ones that benefit under the law.

In addition to our knowledge and extensive experience with cases involving injuries at sea, we prepare and try our own cases, so you can rest assured your individual case will not be farmed out to another law firm as a referral. Our lawyers also take the time to carefully and extensively review the details of your particular incident to give your case the personal attention it deserves. When working with a cruise ship injury lawyer from our firm, you can be sure you will always have an ethical legal professional at your side who will always keep you well informed regarding the status of your case and who will always make themselves available to offer you advice and support throughout the entire duration of your case.

As regulated by the Florida Bar, our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, meaning you will never have to pay a single penny unless and until we obtain a successful recovery for your cruise ship injury caseContact us today to work with an AV-rated lawyer who will diligently and passionately fight for your rights.
