Why You Need a Maritime Lawyer in Your Cruise Ship Accident Case

If you’re injured on a cruise, it may seem pretty obvious to you that the cruise line should be held responsible. Maybe you fell from a balcony because of a loose railing, slipped because of a wet floor on a main walkway, or broke your arm on a shore excursion that was supposed to be “perfectly safe.” In fact, you might think that the connection is so obvious, that you won’t need legal assistance and can just represent yourself in court.

 

You might save some money by opting for self-representation, but you’re essentially sabotaging yourself as far as winning your case goes. Here’s why you need to work with an experienced maritime lawyer.

What Will It Take for Cruise Lines to Employ Lifeguards?

Drowning deaths occur every year on major cruise lines, yet almost none of those cruise lines bother to employ lifeguards. Now, the parents of a Central Florida boy who drowned on a Carnival cruise last fall are speaking out about this gross negligence.

Man Overboard Calls into Question Cruise Ship Rescue Practices

 

A man who went missing from the cruise ship Bahamas Celebration on April 27th has still not been recovered, and search efforts have been suspended.

 

Although it’s unclear exactly what happened, 30-year-old passenger James Miller apparently jumped off the cruise ship while it was sailing between the Bahamas and South Florida, according to the Coast Guard. The South Carolina man was reported missing when the ship was sailing about 27 miles east of Florida’s Delray Beach.

And some of them are true behemoths.
