Thanks to the area’s airports providing fast access to the Gulf, thousands of visitors come to Houston annually on their way to a cruise to the Caribbean and Bahamas. Norwegian Cruise Line and Princess Cruises offer itinerates to beautiful ports of call in these tropical regions. When what should have been a fun, relaxing time cruising to these destinations is shattered by an accident, you should contact a cruise ship accident lawyer in Houston as soon as possible.

When It Comes to Cruise Ship Accident Cases, Perhaps No Firm is Better Equipped to Help

A cruise injury is hopefully the last thing you expected to have to deal with but an attorney with Brais Law is the right choice to help you sort out your rights in this situation. Keith Brais initially started out with a career in marine engineering but had to change course after suffering a serious injury in an accident while working on an offshore oil rig. Trying to understand his rights as an injured worker led him to deciding to go to law school and become a maritime lawyer and eventually getting certified as an expert in admiralty and maritime law. Keith represented cruise lines and other companies for nearly 20 years and defended them against injury claims. He decided to form Brais Law and switch to representing only plaintiffs after winning a particular case left him unsatisfied. Now he and the attorneys on his team use their extensive knowledge and experience to help individuals who have been hurt or lost a loved one get just compensation.

No blanket statement can answer what compensation can be expected in all cases but a cruise injury lawyer with us can discuss your specific case and possible compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical expenses

What is the Death on the High Seas Act?

The Death on the High Seas Act is a maritime law that serves to give rights to a surviving spouse or family member to seek compensation. For instance, if a cruise ship passenger or crewmember is fatally injured in an accident that occurred over three miles out from a U.S. shore, the family can file a wrongful death claim against the liable party.
