Cruise Ship Injuries
In addition to representing seamen and fishing boat crews in Jones Act claims, our law firm helps clients who were injured while passengers on cruise ships. Many cruise lines sail from or stop in San Francisco. Princess Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Oceana Cruises and Regent Seven Seas are the primary large cruise operators. However, many smaller cruise ships and charter cruises are either based in or stop at San Francisco.
San Francisco Cruise Ship Injury Lawyers
At our law firm, Mary Alexander & Associates, P.C., our San Francisco cruise ship injury attorneys represent passengers who were injured or became ill on cruise ships. These claims take two primary forms: premises liability claims or product liability claims. As personal injury lawyers with more than 30 years of experience, we have the knowledge and resources to evaluate the evidence, identify the negligent party and build a strong case. Call us at 877.226.7103 or contact us online.
We also have experience with the legal issues involved in these cases. For example, it is sometimes difficult to determine from the language of the ticket where a lawsuit can be initiated. Whether the claim can be submitted in California or needs to be handled in another state, our law firm can help — our attorneys have done this many times before.
Causes of Injury and Illness on Cruise Ships
Our cases involve all types of accidents and injuries aboard ship, including:
- Slip and falls
- Food poisoning and other illnesses
- Sudden change in ship’s course, running aground and listing due to navigator error or mechanical defect
