What am I Owed if I am Hurt on a Cruise Ship?

Very often the firm receives phone calls from cruise ship passengers. They've set sail out of Miami, a major port for Lauderdale, Houston, wherever the case may be. Sometimes they join ships in Puerto Rico. And there's something that has happened, they've had a slip and fall, they've had a trip and fall. Most recently we've received quite a number of phone calls dealing with electric doors.

There's a whole entire body of law which is a maritime law that says every single cruise ship owes to their passengers the exercise of reasonable care under the circumstances. So if the cruise line knew or should have known of a defective condition, meaning the condition existed for a period of time, that by the exercise a reasonable care, meaning they should have learned about it. If they should have known about it, then they should have rectified the issue correctly. If they haven't, then that cruise passenger has a valid claim against that cruise line.

After my accident I contacted them right away. I was able to see them the same day and was kept in contact throughout the process. Everyone in the office was very accommodating, polite and professional. I highly recommend Brais Law and think very highly of their lead attorneys. They helped me WIN my case, and I am forever grateful. They went above and beyond to assist me. Thank you all so very much. H.S.

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.

I was looking to refer a client injured on a cruise ship and had the pleasure of speaking to Keith. Keith was extremely helpful and he took time out of his day to provide some guidance. If you're looking for a Admiralty & Maritime /Personal Injury Lawyer in Florida, I would highly recommend Brais Law Firm! T.C.
