Our sightseeing & dinner cruise injury attorneys represent both passengers and crew members who suffered injuries aboard these ships. From Key West to Jacksonville, Miami to Tampa, companies throughout Florida offer sightseeing and dinner cruises. These cruises could take the form of sunset sails, points of interest cruises, snorkeling adventures or private dinner and dancing parties. It is an unfortunate fact that passengers as well as crew members sustain injuries on such voyages due to the negligence of the sightseeing and dinner cruise operators.

Though not a complete list, in our experience, maritime personal injuries generally occur due to:

  • Slippery or unclean decks
  • Inadequate lighting
  • Improper docking procedures
  • Collisions
  • Groundings
  • Ill maintained equipment
  • Inadequate railings
  • Dock strikes
  • Excessive work hours

Bringing a Sightseeing & Dinner Cruise Injury Claim

Injury claims arising from sightseeing and dinner cruise accidents are governed under federal maritime law. This means there are different filing deadlines, different legal claims and different recoverable damages than what state law allows. The partners at Brais Law Firm’s Miami office are Board Certified by the Florida bar in the specialized area of maritime law. We have vast experience prosecuting maritime personal injury claims and boast multiple millions of dollars in recovery from cases involving accidents which occurred on the water.

When Brais Law Firm are retained, we conduct a full investigation as to how the accident occurred, identify the witnesses to the accident, determined what physical evidence exists and conduct an analysis as to whether Coast Guard regulations and federal maritime navigation laws were followed. This helps us to explain to the judge and jury why the sightseeing or dinners cruise operator is liable for the accident and the damages suffered by our client.

Compensation for Those Injured on a Sightseeing & Dinner Cruise

Maritime law is clear that injured passengers may recover damages for medical expenses, recoupment of wages lost while out of work and compensation for pain and suffering which are a direct cause of the accident. Crewmembers are also entitled to the same recovery albeit under different legal theories. Each case is different and the amount of recovery depends upon a wide variety of facts. Our lawyers discuss with our clients the types of recovery afforded under maritime law and the appropriate valuation based upon the known facts.

The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.
