November 2016 Cruise Ship Injuries

At Waks and Barnett, P.A. we represent people who were hurt on cruise ships.

With over 20 millions passengers and crew members traveling aboard ships around the world each year, it’s inevitable that accident happen — and injuries occur.

Sometimes these injuries are caused by accidents that were completely avoidable — and because of negligence of the cruise line or its employees — people get hurt.

If you were hurt in a cruise ship accident, it’s important to talk to someone that can help you better understand if your claim may allow you to get compensation from the cruise lines for your injury.

Understanding the circumstances surrounding your injury will allow us to determine if you have a case against the cruise line.

Below are a few inquiries made to our Miami office in November 2016. Each month, we receive 25-40 serious inquiries from people seeking help.

However, it is important to speak with an attorney if you believe the cruise line is at fault. Our attorneys can help you determine if you have a case — or not. Consultations with our attorneys are free.
