Miami Cruise Injury Attorney Explains Cruise Ship Company Liability in Accidents

Liability for a cruise ship accident can be complicated, due to the mix of international laws (and sometimes lack thereof) that regulate the cruise industry. As cruise injury attorney Patrick Montoya discusses in this video, his Florida law firm has become very proficient at resolving claims involving maritime law and personal injury on the water. This includes boating accidents, parasailing, injuries on cruise ship excursions and passenger disappearances on cruise ships.

Over the years, we have developed a very active practice in water sports and aquatics, and particular, dealing with resorts that have water sports activities such as parasailing, water skiing, scuba diving, snorkeling and other excursions where accidents occur. Frequently, they occur in foreign countries. For example, if somebody is on a cruise and they go to the Caribbean and the cruise company sells them an excursion and they end up getting hurt as a result of usually negligence on the part of the tour company. Oftentimes, the hotel or cruise operator in that case can be found liable and can be sued in the United States, so we have developed a very specialized practice in that area and have an ability to keep the case in the United States and prosecute it to its fullest extent.
