Mediterranean Shipping Cruises USA

Injured while on a Mediterranean Shipping Cruises USA (MSC USA) vessel? The Mediterranean Shipping Cruises USA injury lawyers at Brais Law can help you collect the full compensation you deserve for your injuries and their associated costs and damages. 

Mediterranean Shipping Cruises USA says it has over 300 years at sea, with extensive experience helping passengers enjoy “the best-kept secrets in each new destination.” The company was founded in 1675 by the Aponte Family in Naples and is currently based out of Fort Lauderdale, FL. The company entered the cruise arena in 1988, and after a 5.5 billion Euro investment between 2003-2013, it established the most modern cruise fleet on the planet. 

The adventures of MSC USA are provided for by the “experienced crewmembers” of the company, which has a stated focus on providing a unique experience with top-notch hospitality. While this may be the goal, when a passenger or crewmember is injured, the position of the cruise line shifts to that of a defendant seeking to minimize costs. 

MSC owns and operates the following vessels:

  • MSC World Europa
  • MSC Virtuosa 
  • MSC Meraviglia 
  • MSC Bellissima 
  • MSC Euribia 

When you are injured on one of these cruise ships, MSC USA’s focus on hospitality is irrelevant, as you’ll be going up against the insurance company paid by MSC USA to insulate them from liability for the risks faced by passengers and crewmembers onboard. 

In What Court Must I File My Case Against MSC USA? 

If you have been injured on an MSC USA cruise, you must file your claim in a Federal Court in Fort Lauderdale, FL. 

How Much Time Do I Have to Make My Claim? 

The time that you have to file your case will depend upon the language in your contract, in addition to the time limit allowed by applicable laws and the statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is basically an expiration date for your ability to collect compensation for an injury. Once you are a client of Brais Law, we will take over the filing process on your behalf, ensuring that any and all deadlines are met in support of the best outcome in your case. 

Why Should I Hire an MSC USA Injury Lawyer? 

As noted, if you are injured on an MSC USA vessel, you will not be going to the customer service department of MSC, but rather their insurance company. Working with a maritime lawyer from Brais Law puts our 70+ years of combined settlement and trial experience on your side, as we have yielded over $60 million for our injured clients since 2012.
