The Law Office of Andrew Winston Will Take on Large Cruise Lines
Cruise lines know that accidents can happen on their ships, and they create carefully worded passenger contracts in an attempt to relieve themselves of responsibility. If they are sued for negligence, they have the money and resources necessary to hire top lawyers to defend them. This does not mean that injured passengers and crew members should not fight for compensation—it just means that they need to hire the best possible maritime lawyer to give themselves the best chance to win.
