Whether you were injured on board or ashore, pursuing legal action for an injury suffered during a cruise is a complicated process. One important legal question is which law establishes the rights of the victim, and which court can consider his or her claim.
Most major cruise ship companies select the state law that they want to determine their legal responsibilities and an accident victim’s rights. Usually, a cruise line specifies the governing law in the fine print on the back of the cruise ticket.
In some cases, a court will reject the cruise line’s choice of law, and apply United States maritime or admiralty laws or the laws of another legal jurisdiction.
When a person is injured on shore, and the cruise line was not involved, the law of the state or country where the accident happened may set an individual’s rights.
To make a proper claim, the attorney must investigate all the relevant evidence and evaluate the circumstances surrounding an accident, including the place it occurred, the negligent acts that created a hazard, and the relationship of the careless individuals to the cruise line.
If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury aboard a cruise ship, talk with an experienced accident lawyer today. Please submit a simple, free and confidential legal consultation form now.
