Boating & Cruise Ship Injuries
Gelch & Associates, P.A. represent clients who were injured on a cruise ship. Travelling aboard a cruise ship presents many perils. Passengers have suffered serious injuries or have died from falls, fires, medical malpractice, food poisoning, inadequate security and even assaults by crew members during a cruise.
Persons injured on a cruise ship should be aware that cruise ship accidents present unique legal challenges. The fine print on the back of the cruise ship ticket often limits when and where an injured passenger may file a lawsuit. Because our office is located in Ft. Lauderdale our firm is ideally suited to litigate claims where the cruise ship was docked at either the Port of Miami or Port Everglades.
Gelch & Associates understands that injured passengers may have questions regarding payment of their medical care and other day-to-day bills if they are unable to work. Let us review your situation to identify your legal options and discuss how we may be able to serve you. We may be able to help even if you were injured while off the cruise ship on a shore excursion. We also represent crew members who have been seriously injured or killed while working for a cruise line.
If you have questions about an injury you suffered while on a cruise, please complete our online contact form or call us at 866-780-HURT (4878).
