Leesfield Scolaro is a nationally respected personal injury law firm, and specializes in cases against cruise ship companies in Miami and Key West.

A cruise line is responsible for providing a safe environment, adequate security, and quality food to the people on board. If an unsafe condition harms a passenger on a cruise ship, the victim can file a civil personal injury claim and seek monetary compensation for their injuries. The terms of a passenger’s ticket determine the court where a claim must be filed. Almost every cruise line that leaves out of the ports of Miami, Ft Lauderdale, and Key West designate Miami-Dade as the court in which all legal proceedings must be held. Leesfield Scolaro have offices conveniently located in Miami, Key West, and South Beach, allowing our clients easy access to the court system which will be designated for your cruise ship injury case. Many victims of cruise ship injury or illness do not live in Miami or Key West, making it even more important to retain an attorney who can physically represent you in the Miami Courts.Types of Cruise Ship Accidents, Including Injury And Illness
There are many ways a cruise ship passenger may become injured or ill while on board. Any unsafe condition, such as wet, slippery floors, uneven doorways, lurching of the ship, loose handrails, or sliding furniture can all cause serious injury or falls. Negligent or inadequate security can lead to assault, robbery, or rape, either by another passenger or even a cruise ship crewmember. Substandard sanitary measures can lead to an outbreak of infectious disease or illness, such as the infamous Norwalk outbreak. Food poisoning is also a common hazard on cruise ships, as mass quantities of food are purchased, prepared, and served. Cruise lines are also responsible for providing adequate medical care to any passenger who is injured or becomes ill while on board. If you or a loved one became ill on a cruise ship and were not treated correctly, or where even put off at a port of call and left without sufficient arrangements for your care, you need to contact a cruise ship illness lawyer who can help you file a claim.Contact a Cruise Ship Accident Attorney at Leesfield Scolaro
