Maritime Accidents – Coffey Trial Law
Maritime Accident Lawyers in Fort Lauderdale
Each cruise season, tens of thousands of people set out on the vacation of a lifetime upon the high seas, to visit exotic ports of call. Unfortunately, many cruise passengers return from their trip after they have been injured. We have spoken to passengers that have been the victims of medical negligent by cruise ship doctors, have been sexually assaulted by crew members, have suffered an injury on an excursion, or simply slipped and fallen on a slippery pool deck where many cruise passengers have fallen on prior voyages.
It is vital to contact an attorney as early as possible when you have been injured on a cruse ship because the time to sue the cruise line is extremely short since the cruise line will insert a shortened statute of limitations into the cruise contract. Further, most cruise lines require a suit to be filed in the Untied States Federal District Court in Miami, Florida. We have successfully represented residents across the United States for accidents that have occurred in far away regains, like an Alaskan cruise that sails out of the pacific northwest for example. The cruise line is responsible for your safety. If you have been injured on a cruise ship, it is important that you seek immediate medical care and report the incident to the cruise line representatives. Take photographs if possible, and get the names and addresses of any witnesses – even if they live across the country. This will be invaluable evidence to prove your claim. Finally, contact an experienced cruise ship lawyer as soon as practicable.
