We are a Miami law firm that wants to represent you if a cruise line’s carelessness caused your injury. Many cruise lines require that you sue them in Federal Court in Miami, Florida.
This is often true regardless of where the ship sailed from. The time limit to sue a cruise line is much shorter than in a typical Florida injury claim.
We have handled cases against many of the cruise lines listed below.
