Sailing the open sea on a cruise ship might seem especially attractive, but with the benefits of a cruise also come risks associated with insufficient security, poor management, and other factors that can result in physical or financial harm to cruise passengers. If you have been a victim of a crime while on a cruise, a cruise ship crime victim lawyer at Brais Law Firm can help you put together your claim and get the compensation you deserve.
Cruise Ship Crime Claims
Cruise Lines Have Complex Legal Liabilities and Duties
Cruise lines operate on international waters, and the companies that run them are often incorporated in foreign jurisdictions. For example, Carnival Sensation, Carnival Splendor, and Carnival Breeze vessels are flagged pursuant to Panamanian and Bahamian law. This means that the cruise ship you are boarding and deboarding from in the United States may not have to abide by all of the laws of the United States while you are on a cruise. That said, getting just compensation after being victimized can be confusing and difficult. This is why it’s important to discuss your legal options with a cruise ship crime victim lawyer.
