Sea Travel Accident Lawyers
Media headlines typically highlight major, catastrophic accidents such as the sinking of the Titanic (1912), the Stockholm and Andrea Doria collision (1956), or the fire that broke out on the cruise ship Ecstasy (1998). However, sea travel accidents are not uncommon, and there is an increasing incidence of these.
Miami boasts of the world’s largest year-round leisure cruise fleet, is home to approximately 20 ships, and is rightfully earned the title – “The Cruise Capital of the World.” Our presence in Miami, in-depth industry knowledge of all the applicable admiralty/maritime laws, and the industry allow our lawyers and investigators to collate information and handle cases for our clients expeditiously.
We know precisely which sea travel documents are required, including Itineraries for Travel and Contracts of Carriage drafted by lawyers representing the cruise liners. Sometimes, these documents contain forum-selection clauses that can be enforced against the victim or passenger.
This tactic proves in the cruise liner’s favor because the operator specifies which geographic locations and courts these suits can be filed. Our law firm in Coral Gables, FL, also handles Death on the High Seas Act and the Longshoremen’s Act, Jones Act, claims.
