What is a Cruise Ship Accident Lawyer?
Cruise ship accidents come in all shapes and sizes. However, cruise ship accidents in the United States are often governed by laws that differ from those we deal with on land. In short, cruise ship accident cases in Miami Beach may require experienced representation due to the complexity of maritime laws that may govern your case.
If your accident occurs while at sea, you may be subject to one or more of the following:
- Maritime Laws
- State and Federal statutes
- United Nations (UN) agreements made to govern cruise ships while at sea
- International treaties
There are several circumstances—including those mentioned above—that could require an experienced lawyer to handle successfully. At Elstein Legal, we can provide the combination of experience and vigor that can lead you to victory in your case.
Why do I Need a Cruise Ship Accident Lawyer in Miami Beach?
If you suffer a cruise ship injury on foreign waters, you may struggle to understand where to file your case and who has jurisdiction over it. Many cruise ships require injured persons to file their cruise ship accident cases in Miami Beach.
How do I Know If I Have a Cruise Ship Accident Case?
Cruise ship accidents are typically the result of the cruise line (or an associated party) failing to meet the standard of reasonable care required by law. These accidents are often due to the negligence of one or more of these parties.
Parties that may be at fault include:
- The Captain
- Housekeeping Staff
- Safety Staff
- Crew Members
Additionally, injuries occurring due to passengers who are not adequately controlled by the cruise line may also entitle you to compensation from the cruise line. In addition to injuries caused by the ship’s personnel, cruise ship accident cases may also be worth pursuing if dangerous, defective, or malfunctioning equipment are present or if the cruise ship failed to warn of hazardous conditions. You may even have a case if you fall ill while onboard.
