How Soon Do I Need To File a Florida Cruise Ship Accident Lawsuit?

If you are the victim of a cruise ship accident, if you are to listen to one piece of advice be it this: DO NOT WAIT TO FILE YOUR CLAIM!

Sure, when you are enjoying a relaxing cruise holiday, the last things on your mind are injuries, law suits and lawyers. But if an injury does occur while on your cruise ship vacation, you simply cannot afford to sit on your claim. Often time the cruise ship can be held liable for your injuries, meaning that you can receive compensation for all of your injuries. But it should come as no surprise that the cruise ship will do everything it can to make the process of filing your claim as complicated as possible.

For example, cruise ship accident claims have strict statute of limitations. What this means is that you must file your legal claim within a specified time period. If you wait too long, your right will expire and you will not be able to seek compensation. As an example of this, take a look at your cruise ship ticket. Within those pages of fine print that ‘nobody reads’ is likely a paragraph outlining your rights if you are injured while on their cruise ship. Typically this provision will limit your right to file a claim to one year of the injury date. More so, even if you did not sign anything, your mere act of purchasing the ticket will be considered your understanding and approval of these conditions.

As you can see, the cruise ship is well prepared to thwart your efforts to get the compensation you deserve. To ensure you are able to navigate through the many legal hoops that will be thrown at you, it is essential you call on the services of an experienced cruise ship accident attorney.
