Cruise Ship Passenger Injury
Our cruise ship passenger injury attorneys and cruise accident lawyers strictly represent those whose lives were impacted by the negligence of cruise lines. Cruise lines have teams of lawyers who immediately investigate shipboard passenger claims with the objective of benefiting their employer. Don’t be a victim twice; initially when you suffered an injury while traveling as a passenger aboard a cruise ship and, later, by failing to hire experience and accomplished attorneys to protect your right and hold the cruise line financially accountable for your injuries. Hire the Board Certified Admiralty and Maritime attorneys with Brais Law Firm to fight for you.
Experienced Lawyers Representing Injured Cruise Ship Passengers
With over three decades of collective trial experience, our cruise ship passenger injury attorneys and cruise accident lawyers understand cruise ship accident claims and the defenses the cruise lines will likely assert. Having expertise in maritime law sets us apart from other firms who are familiar with bringing “land based” claims. Maritime law has its own filing requirements and conditions which are different from other areas of law. Our cruise ship passenger injury attorneys often write about these topics on our blog and speak about them at legal symposiums across the United States. In addition to writing and lecturing on cruise injury topics, Brais Law Firm boasts numerous reported legal decisions spanning nearly three decades setting precedent in the field of Admiralty and Maritime law.
Brais Law Firm’s main office is located just minutes of the Port of Miami which is commonly known as “The Cruise Ship Capital of the World”. Most cruise lines are based in the South Florida area and their tickets often require those who suffered from cruise ship injuries to file their lawsuit in the Miami Division of the United States Federal District Court for the Southern District of Florida. This is true even if the cruise ship never touched a Florida port. Our cruise ship passenger injury attorneys and cruise accident lawyers are licensed to practice in the Southern District of Florida and are members of the admiralty law section of the Federal Bar Association. We are very familiar with the Federal court system which enables us to provide quality representation for our clients.
