Celebrity Cruise Accidents

Accident on a Celebrity Cruise Ship? Our Celebrity Cruises accident attorneys have helped numerous passengers over nearly three decades to receive the compensation they deserve. Celebrity Cruises was founded in 1988 and merged with Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines in 1997. Both companies are headquartered and share office buildings in Miami, Florida. Currently, the cruise line operates the following ships:

Millennium Class

  • Celebrity Millennium
  • Celebrity Infinity
  • Celebrity Summit
  • Celebrity Constellation
  • Independence of the Seas

Solstice Class

  • Celebrity Solstice
  • Celerity Equinox
  • Celebrity Eclipse
  • Celebrity Silhouette
  • Celebrity Reflection

Xpedition Class

  • Celebrity Xpedition

Though Celebrity is a large company and has many newer cruise ships, injuries do occur with regularity. Our Celebrity Cruises accident attorneys routinely represent injured passengers against Celebrity Cruises.

Why Should I Hire a Maritime Lawyer to Represent Me Against Celebrity Cruises?

Celebrity and Royal Caribbean share a risk management/loss prevention department. This team of highly trained professionals are employed for the purpose of lessening the amount of money the cruise lines pay to their passengers for personal injury claims. If you were injured during a Celebrity cruise, it is important to contact a qualified law firm that has experience in representing passengers against cruise lines. Contacting a qualified maritime personal injury firm will place you on equal footing with the cruise lines. Our Celebrity Cruises accident attorneys are experienced with handling claims against Celebrity and will take the time to explain your rights to you.

Are There any Time Limits for Bringing a Claim?

Passengers injured on a Celebrity cruise must be aware that cruise ship claims are treated differently than injuries that occur on land. Maritime Law allows cruise lines to insert a six-month notice and one-year suit time provision into their cruise ticket contracts. This means an injured passenger must provide Celebrity with written notice of a potential claim within six months of the accident and file a lawsuit within one year of the accident. If these contractual conditions are not satisfied timely, you could be forever barred from pursuing a claim. At Brais Law Firm, our Celebrity Cruises accident attorneys notify the cruise line of the claim on your behalf and make sure all time requirements are met. We do this so our clients will not have to stress about complying with the contract requirements and instead can concentrate on trying to return to life they enjoyed before their accident.

Where Must My Injury Claim be Filed?

Maritime law allows cruise lines to select a court that will hear a passenger’s personal injury case. Celebrity selects Federal court located in Miami, Florida. Brais Law Firm’s main office is in Miami, Florida. This allows us easy access to the Court in which our client’s claims are filed as well as familiarity with the policies and procedures of the judges deciding the case.
