Offshore Injury? Consult a Cruise Ship Accident Attorney ASAP
Maritime laws differ significantly from laws that govern land-based accidents and injuries, and they are not particularly “passenger friendly.” Most of these laws, including the Jones Act and the Seaman’s Act, are designed specifically to protect the staff of seafaring vessels. Are you a worker on a cruise ship? See if you are covered by the Jones Act.
Passengers have fewer protections. Consulting with a cruise ship injury lawyer in Florida is an important step in safeguarding your rights. Cruise operators are bound by the rules of “common carriers.” That is, they must adhere to a high standard of care for their passengers to ensure safety. The LaBovick Law Group will work with you to determine whether negligent or reckless disregard led to your injury. And then we will develop a case that compels the compensation you deserve.

Why You Need a Cruise Injury Lawyer
Injuries incurred on a cruise ship are not treated the same as those incurred on land. A general personal injury attorney may not realize, for example, that the statute of limitations is truncated. Passengers have less than a year, and in some cases, just six months, to file a claim.
Further complicating matters, many cruise lines require that passengers file suit in specific cities (e.g. the city in which they operate). This can make it difficult for people from other states or countries to pursue legal remedy.
The LaBovick Law Group is fully versed in maritime law and has helped aggrieved passengers seek damages for over 25 years. We understand the law; more importantly, we understand how difficult dealing with an injury offshore is and we can provide the supports you need at this challenging time.
