That’s probably a subjective question, but one that a passenger who has been injured on a cruise ship may be asking as they search for someone to help them better understand whether they can sue a cruise line — or not.
We find that for people who are doing online searches in Google “good cruise ship injury lawyer” or similar searches are pretty popular.
And if they’re popular, that means finding a good attorney is important to them.
And it should be.
Figuring out how to file an injury claim against a cruise line is difficult. The cruise lines don’t make it easy. And if you’re struggling with recovery and rehabilitation after an injury, you’re not able to give full effort in figuring things out by yourself.
It’s why people call attorneys. They need legal help.
A good cruise lawyer.
When you’re first searching for an attorney to talk to about your injury or accident, a good cruise lawyer will be one that 1) spends time with you on the phone or in person 2) can answer your questions and provide and explanation for and 3) is trustworthy, honest and experienced.
**It’s important to review an attorney’s website — this will help you determine how experienced an attorney is. Look for information about Attorney Bio’s, Recent Cases, Success Stories, Resources and other Helpful Information.
What determines a good cruise ship accident attorney?
Once an attorney is hired to represent you, there are other things that make the attorney “good.”
For some clients, having a good relationship with the attorney is an important factor. What this really means is — do they feel comfortable asking questions and getting answers back quickly, do they feel “cared for” and do they feel like the law firm they’ve hired is really going to work hard for them.
Track record and experience is important. It’s reassuring to know that a firm like Waks and Barnett, P.A. has been focusing on cruise ship injuries and accidents for more than 25 years. That’s what we do. We have a track record that includes hundreds and hundreds of cases over those 25 years. And we’re happy to talk to you about the settlement we’ve received for past clients and how we feel about your specific case.
If we had to list out what make a a good attorney, it would be:
- An ability to provide explanation and guidance for your specific claim
- Trust between client and attorney
- Good communication
- Past experience, specifically with cruise ship injuries
- A proven track record of success
- A reasonable understanding of the potential outcome of a lawsuit
