Cruise Ship Injuries
Victims of cruise ship accidents can suffer injuries that change their lives forever. Passengers can be injured due to slip and falls, assault by crew members or fellow passengers, food poisoning, lack of appropriate security and other negligent actions. The cruise ship industry is notorious for restricting when and where you can file a claim. The restrictions appear in the fine print on your ticket. For example, many tickets require you to notify the cruise line in writing within six months after the injury occurs. The ticket may also have a provision that requires you to file your claim within one year of the accident and may require the claim to be filed in a specific court in a specific state. Because of these limitations, it is important to have representation from an experienced attorney who can ensure you take the necessary steps in case of cruise ship accidents. If you or someone you love has been injured in a cruise ship accident, Anderson & Mitchell can help. Wayne Mitchell spent years representing cruise lines and has a broad understanding of the legal issues facing someone injured while on a cruise ship. Today, Wayne represents cruise line passengers.
