Accidents Happen On Cruise Ships. We Can Help.
South Florida is home to the world’s largest cruise ships as part of its state-of-the-art port and terminals, serving as a hub for the booming global cruise industry — with revenues forecast to reach $57 billion in the next 10 years. The exercise of reasonable care is part of cruise companies’ commitment to passengers, safely transporting them between locations. Unlike injuries that occur on land, claims that arise as a result of cruise ship accidents or negligence are subject to unique safety and operational requirements, including common carrier and maritime laws. With more than 30 years practicing law in Florida, Menendez Trial Attorneys is conversant in all the legal parameters and proceedings of cruise ship liability and the compensation victims are entitled to.
An Injury On A Cruise Ship Requires A Swift Legal Response
After any injury, acting swiftly is of the utmost importance. Depending on carrier and maritime laws, the legal window to address an injury that occurs on a cruise ship can be significantly shortened, so obtaining representation can make all the difference.
At Menendez Trial Attorneys, we work with clients to determine negligence and evaluate the situation completely, from top to bottom. Whether the injury occurred due to negligence or willful intent, our office will work to explore every detail prior to engaging in a court battle.
