Cruise Ship Accident Lawyer Miami
Any injury, accident, or crime that occurs on a cruise ship will fall under maritime law. These laws are put in place to protect the passengers and employees of cruise ships and other sea vessels. Cruise ship accidents must be carefully handled if the victim hopes to receive compensation for their injuries. In these cases, the statute of limitations is often very short, and the terms of a passenger’s ticket may restrict the court in which the case must be filed. In most cases, if your vessel left from Miami or docked in Miami, your case must be filed in Miami as well. This is why it is important to consult a skilled Miami lawyer about your cruise ship accident as soon as possible. Contact the law offices of Leesfield Scolaro, and an experienced local lawyer familiar with cruise ship accidents in Miami will assist you with your claim.What Counts As A Cruise Ship Accident?
