- Who is negligent if I am injured in a slip and fall on a cruise? That depends. One issue that frequently arises in cruise ship slip and fall cases is whether or not the cruise ship had notice of the dangerous condition. An important thing to remember if you've been injured in a slip and fall on a cruise ship is to gather the names of witnesses, take photos, video, and collect evidence that helps prove that the cruise line had notice of the dangerous condition before you fell., Who is negligent if I am injured in a slip and fall on a cruise?, 2017
- Are there time limits to file my Florida cruise ship accident lawsuit? Yes, and this is where most personal injury lawyers who don't also specialize in maritime law can get tripped up. There is a one-year statute of limitations to file your claim against the cruise line. This is found in the cruise passenger ticket. In addition to the timeline, there is also a foreign selection clause which requires that you bring your claim in a particular court, most often in Florida. Additionally, in your cruise passenger ticket, there will be a requirement to give the cruise line written notice within six months of your injury., Are there time limits to file my Florida cruise ship accident lawsuit?, 2017
- I was injured on a cruise. What do I do now? You should immediately report the incident to a crew member of the ship. Additionally, depending on the severity of your injury, you should seek medical treatment on the ship. You should also have your crews partner take photos and video of the scene in your injuries. You should try and track down any witnesses who might have seen the incidence, the circumstances surrounding your injury. Try and get their name and some sort of contact information, and then when you return from the cruise, you should contact a lawyer who can advise you of your rights and make a claim on your behalf against the cruise line., I was injured on a cruise.
