Los Angeles, CA Cruise Ship Injury Attorneys

The Port of Los Angeles is a seaport along the city of Los Angeles that stretches for some 43 miles of the waterfront before reaching the separate Port of Long Beach. The Port of Los Angeles is the busiest container port in all of North America — a position that has been maintained for decades.  Unfortunately, with so much activity comes many serious accidents that have left visitors and port employees badly injured—in some cases, fatally.

Common Cruise Ship Accidents Claims

In addition to a thriving shipping and container industry, L.A. is known for the many local opportunities offered by a variety of luxurious cruise lines, including:

  • Royal Caribbean International
  • Princess Cruises
  • Celebrity Cruises
  • Norwegian Cruise Line

While these cruises offer a variety of recreational activities and fun for passengers and money-making potential for employees, injuries on cruise ships are also more common than you might think. Some of the most common accidents resulting in injuries by passengers or crew members involve:

  • Vessel worker negligence
  • Negligent maintenance
  • Negligent operation of the vessel
  • Negligent operation of onboard features
  • Negligent operation of water features
  • Sexual assault and rape

Choose the Legal Team that Makes it a Personal Mission to Help Those Who Have Been Injured

The attorneys at Brais Law are focused exclusively on plaintiff-side maritime law, representing the interests of workers, passengers, and others who have been injured on a cruise ship. This came about after founding attorney, Keith Brais, decided to start protecting the rights of those who have been injured in maritime accidents rather than continuing to defend cruise lines and other major maritime companies and insurers against injury claims. It's a decision he's never had to regret as our team of skilled lawyers has helped our clients collect over $60 million in settlements and victories in court since 2012. Each injury lawyer on our team is highly skilled in the area of cruise ship accidents and we have over 70 years of combined trial experience.

Put Brais Law's National Experience with Cruise Ship Injury Cases at Work for You or a Loved One

While you may have been injured anywhere on the planet, if you were harmed on a vessel that is owned by a company headquartered in Los Angeles, you may end up in Federal Court in southern California. We can help you with effective representation in state and Federal Court.

From Insurance Claims to Lawsuits in L.A. Courts, A Maritime Lawyer with Us is Dedicated to Getting the Most Successful Outcome Possible

Whether you are just starting to gather evidence to prove the damages for your insurance claim or you have already been denied and need to file a lawsuit in Federal Court to collect what you are rightfully owed, Brais Law is available to help. Don't hesitate to contact our firm today.

Why Contact an Attorney Experienced in Cruise Ship Injury Cases?

Injuries on cruise ships can lead to long-term and life-altering consequences, and those often come with major financial costs. The purpose of filing a claim or lawsuit is to reduce the financial impact of your injuries on your personal finances and to be compensated for negative changes to your life from your injuries, such as pain and suffering, disability, loss of companionship, and the overall reduction in one’s enjoyment of life.

Isn’t Sexual Assault that Happens on a Cruise Ship Solely a Police Matter?

Sexual assault and rape are criminal acts and the perpetrator should be punished, the victim should be given compensation for the physical and emotional trauma suffered in the event. Cruise ships are responsible for keeping passengers safe and both the cruise line and the perpetrator can be held liable for damages.

I Was Hurt During a Shore Excursion on a Cruise Originating from Los Angeles—Where Do I Go for Legal Help?

A cruise ship attorney at Brais Law has successfully helped clients with similar cases. Even though you were away from the cruise ship’s home port and away from the ship itself, we can help determine what party—or parties—were at fault.
