Suing Royal Caribbean for a personal injury accident could be somewhat involved. The relationship between the injured passenger and the cruise line is governed by the cruise ticket. Our lawyers are well acquainted with Royal Caribbean’s ticket language and the requirements an injured passenger must satisfy when suing Royal Caribbean.

The three most important requirements that injured passengers must be aware of are that Royal Caribbean must receive a written notice of a claim within six months of the date of the injury, a lawsuit must be filed within one year of the accident and the lawsuit must be filed in the Miami Division of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. As soon as a person becomes a Brais Law Firm client, our Royal Caribbean cruise line accident attorneys ensure all key ticket requirements are satisfied.
