You may not realize it, but if you were hurt on a cruise ship and want to file an injury claim or lawsuit against the cruise line, the cruise lines would prefer that you did not hire a personal injury lawyer.
Why is that?
Very simply – once involved with your injury claim, experienced cruise injury lawyers have vastly better results – both in filing claims correctly and in gaining compensation for your injury – than you would going it alone.
What you should know is that the cruise lines are in business to make money, and sadly that could come at your expense even if an accident that injured you was not your fault.
Having to pay out money for injury claims (even when they or their employees are at fault) is not something they want to do. Their procedures and rules for filing an injury claim makes the process difficult and will make communication and collection of money difficult.
It’s why you need to speak with a cruise ship injury lawyer and not try to “go it alone” — you will likely need legal guidance throughout the process – you need someone who can navigate through the court system and represent your claim in a correct and accurate way!
An experienced attorney (like Andrew Waks or Joel Barnett at our firm) will walk you through the steps of filing a claim and pursuing compensation for your injuries – compensation that could cover hospital bills, doctor visits, treatment, medication and more. An attorney can represent you and do all of the hard work involved in dealing with the cruise line and other parties. You can focus on healing your injuries and your attorney can focus on your case.
Consult with a cruise accident law firm – You have the right to legal counsel!
