Cruise Ship Accidents
Despite both taking place on cruise ships, the types of injuries suffered by cruise ship workers and passengers can differ dramatically, and different laws are called into play in each case. Many crew members may not understand that their employment contract contains clauses which prohibit where, when and how you can sue the cruise line. We understand and can help you navigate through this process. The same thing goes for passengers who have likely given up their ability to have their case heard by a Texas jury.
When you choose us to handle your case, you can be confident that you will work with an attorney who understands the applicable laws and has experience handling cases like yours. From our law office in League City, we represent people in Galveston and Harris Counties, throughout Texas and nationwide in maritime accident claims involving cruise ships.
Injured While Working On A Cruise Ship?
The first thing to recognize is that your case may be different from a land-based workers’ compensation claim. Depending on your role aboard the cruise ship, you may need to pursue a Jones Act Claim or another type of maritime law claim. We will review your situation and determine the appropriate type of claim to file, and we will usher you through the process.
Our services are available to anyone who works on a cruise ship, from captains, officers and engine room staff to cabin stewards, wait staff and chefs.
