This is a common question we get from clients:
Do I need to live in Florida for you to represent my cruise ship injury claim?
The answer to that question is no, you do not need to live in Florida for Waks and Barnett to represent you against a cruise line. If you’ve been injured in an accident or were the victim of medical negligence or mistreatment aboard a cruise ship, we can help you.
You could live in New York, Ohio, Texas or another state and we could help you with your case. You could even live outside of the United States and we could represent you against a Florida based cruise line.
In fact, you will likely need the help of a Florida or Miami based cruise ship lawyer because the cruise lines dictate where legal claims must be filed – and most claims will need to be filed in Miami or Florida courts because that is what the cruise lines have decreed.
Our attorneys have worked on hundreds of claims for injured passengers who live in other states outside of Florida. Whether they have found us directly through an Internet search or through a referral from a local attorney, we have been happy to walk them through their rights and the process required to file a claim.
