Injuries on Crystal Cruises 

Have you experienced an injury while onboard a Crystal Cruises vessel? A highly experienced Crystal Cruises injury lawyer at Brais Law can help you determine if you have a case. If we take your case, we will work hard on your behalf to recover the full amount you deserve. 

Crystal Cruises was founded in 1988 by the Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kaisha, and in 2015, it was sold to Hong Kong-based conglomerate Genting Hong Kong. Recently, the company was again acquired, this time by A&K Travel Group Ltd., and the company is now headquartered in Downers Grove, Illinois. Cruise lines like this are often very corporatized, and their insurance companies (not their customer service teams) are responsible for dealing with people who are injured on or by such vessels. 

Crystal Cruises owns and operates the following luxury cruise vessels, which Crystal Cruises claim are “6-star” quality:

  • Crystal Serenity 
  • Crystal Symphony 

These vessels bring passengers across the world, and if you experience an injury on one of them, it can be confusing to determine what laws apply. 

Why Should I Hire a Crystal Cruises Injury Lawyer for My Claim? 

The insurance company that is paid by Crystal Cruises to insulate them from liability for injuries will do whatever it can to reduce the amount they pay on your claim, if not deny it altogether. Insurance companies have teams of lawyers and claim analysts who will try to poke holes in your filing and offer low settlements to reduce costs and improve profits. In some instances, insurance companies have even been known to wrongfully deny claims in the hopes that the injured person will not file again or accept a lower amount on appeal. 

Working with an experienced Crystal Cruises injury lawyer from Brais Law puts our 70 years of combined trial experience on your side. Since 2012, we have helped our clients who have experienced maritime injuries recover over $60 million in combined settlements and victories in court. We have the kind of experience you can count on and that the insurance companies will respect, which can lead to a faster and more complete settlement on your claim. 

What Court Do I Have to File My Personal Injury Claim Against Crystal Cruises In? 

When you have been injured as a passenger or crewmember on Crystal Cruises, your case must be filed in Federal Court in Miami. 

How Long Do I Have to Bring My Claim? 

The amount of time that you will have to bring your claim will often be limited by your ticket and related contract, in addition to applicable law. Once you are a client of Brais Law, we will ensure that all deadlines are taken care of so you won’t have to worry about it.
