Maritime laws, international treaties, and agreements govern cruise ship liabilities for injuries and death claims at sea. You need experienced legal representation if you are injured on a cruise ship in Florida, whether as a crew member or a passenger.
Who can be Held Liable for Your Cruise Ship Injuries?
Cruise ships are common carriers and require the highest level of care to ensure their passengers are safe and protected, meaning they can be held responsible for any damages if they fail to exercise this care. If you or a loved one was injured on board a cruise ship, you can file a claim against the responsible parties, including:
- Owner of the cruise ship
- Company chartering or operating the cruise ship
- The company that sold the cruise ship ticket
- Any other party that caused the injury
