Why Do I Need an Attorney?
When someone is injured on a cruise ship excursion their path to recovery for their injuries will likely be more complicated than if they had been injured in U.S. state. A misstep in procedure can cause major delays in getting a claim resolved, or result in your claim being dismissed entirely. As such, having an experienced lawyer represent you if you have suffered injury while on a cruise ship excursion can be essential to your outcome. A lawyer can navigate the court rules, ensure that you have identified the proper defendants, and state a legal cause of action for which a court has the authority to hear your case.
In addition, cruise lines are massive companies who will undoubtedly have aggressive attorneys to represent them. These attorneys will do everything they can to protect the company’s bottom line by pressuring you to take lowball settlement offers, or else trying to deny your claim entirely. This is why it’s especially important to have a lawyer to defend your rights and protect your interests.

When the cruise ship operator fails to have the proper security for their passengers, both on the boat and during excursions, they may be liable for injuries. This may even extend to instances in which a passenger who suffered injury should have been given a warning about local dangers before leaving the ship, regardless of whether or not they were accompanied by security.
