United States cruise ship injury lawyer

As a United States cruise ship injury lawyer, I handle cases dealing with injuries to both passengers and crewmembers. Cruise ship cases often have difficult and challenging legal issues for the lawyers in personal injury matters. For instance, cruise ship tickets have a forum selection clause which restricts where an injury lawsuit may be brought. Thus, an injured passenger must submit to the jurisdiction of the state where the cruise ship company has its corporate offices. This is usually in Miami, Florida. I typically work on these cases with local lawyers in Miami.
