Andrew L. Waks, Miami Maritime Lawyer
“I’ve been practicing cruise ship injury law and maritime law for more than 25 years. During that time I’ve seen too many people who were hurt because of the negligent actions of others.
When an accident is not your fault, you shouldn’t be on the hook for medical bills and lost wages. We can help you.” —Andrew Waks
Focused on helping cruise ship accident victims
For more than 25 years, my partner Joel Barnett and I have been helping injured cruise ship passengers fight the cruise lines for compensation for their injuries. It’s important to know that successful injury claims often start with a conversation between a client and an attorney.
Our experience in navigating the legal requirements involved in filing claims and managing cases on the behalf of our clients can greatly enhance the chance of a successful settlement or verdict.
