Accidents occur on cruise ships all the time; a cruise line often tries to protect itself by putting clauses and provisions onto a passenger’s ticket that limits the amount of time that a passenger has to make a claim, which is often three years, depending on the situation. Since many of the major cruise lines are based in Florida, many of the clauses on a passenger’s ticket specify that all litigation must take place in Florida. As a firm that has vast experience in cruise ship accidents, we understand these clauses and, while many of our clients live outside of Florida, we have the means to represent our clients throughout Florida. Though many cruise lines are foreign owned, by making even one port of call in Florida, our cruise ship rape attorneys can use our knowledge of international treaties to go after the cruise lines.
If you have suffered one of these injuries as the result of another person’s or cruise line’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact cruise ship sexual assault lawyer John H. (Jack) Hickey in Miami, Florida, to discuss your case.
