Ticket Contracts

ticket Contract Cruise ship passenger ticket contracts are written by lawyers working for cruise ship companies to limit and in certain instances eliminate a cruise line’s liability in the event of injury or death of a cruise ship passenger accident victim. Having previously represented the cruise ship companies for nearly 20 years, the board certified maritime attorneys at the law firm of Brais Law Firm are in a unique position to help cruise ship passengers who have suffered personal injury, rape and sexual assault or death of a loved one while on board a cruise ship or shoreside while visiting a port of call. The cruise ship ticket contract attorneys with Brais Law Firm are familiar with exculpatory and adhesion language found within cruise ticket contracts. This specialized knowledge, helps the firm’s cruise passenger clients in their lawsuit against cruise lines.

Most cruise ship passengers don’t have the time or inclination to read their cruise passenger ticket contract. This may prove detrimental to an injured cruise passenger’s rights as these tickets contain restrictions affecting your ability to sue a cruise ship company. For example:

  • Cruise ship tickets often require injured cruise passengers to provide notice of their accidents within 120 to 180 days.
  • Along with the requirement to provide notice, cruise tickets often shorten the allowable time for cruise passengers to file suit against the cruise line to only one year from the date of an accident.
  • Nearly every cruise ship company’s ticket designates the city and court in which they must be sued even if the passenger never visited that city during the cruise.

Missing these deadlines or filing suit in the wrong court can result in your case being dismissed. However, maritime law provides limited exceptions to these rules. The cruise ship ticket lawyers at Brais Law Firm know the restrictions contained within cruise ship ticket contracts and have vast experience litigating these provisions. If you are injured while on a cruise ship, you may be entitled to payment for your medical bills, future medical expenses, lost income, as well as pain and suffering.

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.
