Attorneys For Sea Travel Accidents
Typically, media headlines focus on significant, catastrophic incidents, such as the sinking of the Titanic in 1912, the Stockholm and Andrea Doria collisions in 1956, or the fire that burst out from the cruise ship Ecstasy in 1998. However, maritime transport mishaps are not rare, and their frequency is increasing.
Miami is home to the world’s largest year-round leisure cruise fleet, roughly 20 ships, and has rightfully claimed the title of “The Cruise Capital of the World.” Our base in Miami, our in-depth business understanding of all applicable admiralty/maritime regulations, and our familiarity with the industry enable our attorneys and investigators to collect data and handle matters swiftly for our clients.
We are fully aware of the documentation required for maritime travel, including Itineraries for Travel and Contracts of Carriage issued by cruise line lawyers. Occasionally, these papers include forum selection terms that can be used against the victim or traveler.
This strategy benefits the cruise liner since it allows the operator to specify the geographical areas and courts where these claims may be filed. Our law office in Key West, Florida, also handles disputes under the Death on the High Seas Act, the Longshoremen’s Act, and the Jones Act.
