Our cruise passenger disappearances lawyers and fall overboard attorneys represent the families of passengers who have disappeared or have fallen overboard. Passengers disappear and are lost overboard for a number of reasons for which a cruise line can be held accountable. Having previously represented cruise ship companies for 19 years, the board-certified maritime attorneys at the law firm of Brais Law Firm are in a unique position to help in the event of an accident or crime resulting in a cruise ship passenger disappearance or loss of a loved one overboard. With offices in Miami, Florida and Boston, Massachusetts, the lawyers at the law firm of Brais Law Firm are here to serve the families left behind and hold a negligent cruise line responsible for a passenger whose disappearance is suspicious or falls overboard due to a cruise line’s negligence.
Cruise ship passenger disappearances can occur many different ways including:
- Inadequate or defective handrails;
- Intoxication from being over-served alcohol in the ship’s bars and lounges;
- Failing to warn of rough seas;
- Violent actions of the ship’s crew members or other passengers; and,
- Failure to perform adequate rescue operations.
The board-certified cruise passenger disappearances and fall overboard attorneys at the law firm of Brais Law Firm are experienced with assessing if a cruise line is liable for passengers falling overboard or disappearing.
