Should I Hire an Attorney to Handle My Injury Claim Against Norwegian Cruise Line?

Norwegian Cruise Line has a full legal department whose main goal is to minimize the amount of money the company pays for personal injury claims even if its negligence is the sole reason why the accident happened. The Norwegian Cruise Line accident attorneys of Brais Law Firm are very familiar with how the cruise line defends personal injury lawsuits. With this knowledge, we are in the unique position to properly protect your rights and seek all due compensation for your injury.

Are There any Time Limits for Bringing my Claim?

Yes. Like nearly all other cruise lines, Norwegian Cruise Line requires its injured passengers to file a lawsuit within one year of the accident. In addition to the one year suit-time requirement, the passenger ticket contract requires that the cruise line be provided written notice of a potential claim within six months of the accident. Should an injured passenger not comply with these ticket provisions, his or her claim may be barred.

Where Must I File my Personal Injury Lawsuit Against Norwegian Cruise Line?

Since Norwegian Cruise Line is based in Miami, it requires all personal injury lawsuits be filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida no matter where the passenger is located or where the port of the cruise commenced and concluded. With offices located minutes from the Southern District of Florida courthouse, our lawyers are positioned to help you with a lawsuit against Norwegian Cruise Line.
