What is the statute of limitations?

Under the law, injury victims have a limited amount of time in which they can bring forward a claim for compensation against those responsible for their injury. This is known in legal terms as the statute of limitations. For most cruise ship injuries, the statute of limitations for filing a claim for damages is extremely strict, and in some cases, is as short as one year. The statute of limitations for cruise ship injuries is actually printed on a passenger’s ticket, but in most cases, people aren’t aware that this information is listed here, making it possible for them to miss their opportunity to take legal action should they fail to file suit within the statute of limitations.
