Cruise Ship Sexual Assault
Our Cruise Ship Rape Lawyer Wants to Keep You Safe
Though sexual assaults can occur anywhere at any time, a sexual assault that occurs while on the high seas is especially terrifying to the victim since that person is stuck in the middle of the ocean with nowhere to go. Our firm knows how delicate these situations can be for the victims and we work closely with our clients to resolve the situation as quickly as possible. We have experience in looking into other complaints against each cruise line to see if there is a discernible pattern. If there is a pattern, Florida Law provides protection for the victims against the cruise lineās negligence. When cruise ship sexual assaults and rapes occur, the cruise lines tend to want to settle quietly; our Miami cruise ship sexual assault attorneys have experience in dealing with the cruise lineās methods and we look into the best way to handle each individual case.
If a person, whether another passenger or crew member, participates in sexual acts with a minor (under the age of 16), this person has committed sexual assault or rape. At this age, it does not matter whether or not the victim gave āconsentā.
If you have suffered one of these injuries as the result of another person’s or cruise lineās negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact cruise ship sexual assault lawyer and maritime attorney John H. (Jack) Hickey in Miami, Florida, to discuss your case.
