Legal Advocates For Passengers Injured Aboard Cruise Ships Or Passenger Vessel
Cruise ships and commercial tour boats make hundreds of trips each year out of San Francisco Bay. The vessels are highly regulated. Safety for the paying public and the professional crew members is supposed to be the primary concern of the captain and crew at all times.
If you were injured on a cruise ship or tour boat while riding as a passenger, you need to know that maritime injury law is not the same as land-based personal injury law. Vessel owners are under special federal admiralty regulations, and the process for filing a lawsuit includes very specific timelines and requirements for evidence.
Not all personal injury law firms have the capacity or experience to represent injury victims in claims related to maritime injuries. Injury claims involving cruise and pleasure boats are complex.
