Cruise Ship Injuries
Millions of people take cruises and casino boats throughout the year. Unfortunately, many innocent adults and children are also seriously injured while offshore. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed on a cruise line, casino ship or casino river boat, it is important that you contact experienced personal injury trial attorneys as soon as possible after your return home. Waiting too long can cause your claim to be lost by the statute of limitations.
Causes of action for injuries on a cruise ship, casino ship and casino river boat can have shorter statutes of limitations than in other cases. This means that you have a shorter time to bring your claim. If you miss the deadline, you will not be able to seek damages for your injuries and losses. Therefore, it is important to contact Michael P. Fleming & Associates, P.C. as soon as possible after your trip. It is also important to assemble and preserve your cruise documents such as your tickets and other papers related to the voyage.
