Cruise Ship and
Ferry Passenger Injuries
Whether you are 10 miles out to sea or still tied up to the dock, if you are injured aboard a cruise ship or ferry your claim will be governed by federal maritime law. Maritime law falls under the federal courts’ admiralty jurisdiction and has its own distinct case law and statutes with unique remedies.
Vessel operators will vigorously oppose your lawsuit and a competent defense attorney will immediately have your claim removed from state court to federal court. This will require you to hire an experienced maritime injury attorney, one who knows the ins and outs of maritime law and has tried cases in the federal court system.
