A cruise should be a relaxing experience. However, sometimes accidents happen on cruises. They’re often the result of someone’s negligence. Have you been injured in such an accident? If so, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses. Review your case with a Hialeah cruise ship accidents lawyer at Elstein Legal to learn more.
Types of Hialeah Cruise Ship Accidents
Hialeah cruise ship accidents resulting from someone’s negligence can take many forms. The following are simply a few noteworthy examples:
- Accidents involving avoidable fires,
- Elevator/escalator accidents,
- Slip and fall accidents,
- Pool-related accidents.
“Accidents” for which you’re entitled to compensation may also involve illness rather than injury. For example, if you were served contaminated food during a cruise, you could get food poisoning.
How a Cruise Ship Accidents Law Firm in Hialeah Helps
If you’re injured in a Hialeah cruise ship accident, and you believe your accident resulted from someone else’s negligence, you can seek compensation for such losses as your medical bills by filing a claim against the negligent party’s insurance. Enlisting the help of a personal injury law firm in Hialeah will optimize your chances of collecting what you’re owed in the following key ways:
Identifying Negligent Parties
At Elstein Legal, you’ll find personal injury lawyers in the Hialeah area ready to investigate your accident. A thorough investigation is often necessary in these circumstances in order to identify the negligent party.
Sometimes you may not immediately know whose negligence caused your Hialeah cruise ship accident. For example, perhaps you were injured due to an escalator malfunction.
There are multiple possible negligent parties in this scenario. The cruise ship company may be entitled to compensation if the malfunction resulted from lack of proper maintenance. On the other hand, it may be more appropriate to seek compensation from the elevator’s designers or manufacturers if the malfunction was linked to an overlooked defect. Our investigation will accurately determine who you should file a claim or lawsuit against.
Determining How Much You’re Owed
Did you know you may be entitled to compensation not only for your financial losses, but for such losses as pain and suffering as well? A Hialeah cruise ship accident lawyer at Elstein Legal will use special methods to assign a dollar value to such losses, helping you determine precisely how much compensation you should seek.
Insurance companies aren’t inclined to pay you as soon as you file a claim. To collect what you’re owed, you need representation from a professional who knows how to present evidence showing why you’re entitled to the amount of compensation you’re seeking. Keep in mind, if a fair settlement is out of reach, we’re prepared to go to court on your behalf.
