Cruise Injury Lawyers


What Should You Do and Who Should You Call After Suffering a Physical Injury on a Cruise Ship?

We see it all of the time. People who are injured in a cruise ship accident don't know who to talk to about their accident (like a slip and fall accident from a wet deck or crowded restaurant). They come back from their cruise vacation hurt, confused and frustrated. Maybe they can't go to work because of the injury or maybe medical bills are piling up.

Then someone (a spouse, friend, co-worker or family member) suggests that they call an attorney. They call a local attorney who has no experience dealing with the big, scary cruise lines. Then what? Hopefully, the local attorney can refer the injured person to a personal injury cruise ship lawyer. Or maybe an online Google search can refer you.
