Cruise Ship Accident Attorney

cruise ship injury on open water

They are not simply a personal injury that occurs on a cruise ship, but rather a combination of local and federal maritime laws that dictate how your claim is handled after the accident. This can lead to a number of nuisances and problems after a cruise ship accident.

Maritime Law

For instance, maritime law may dictate that your suit must be handled through the cruise line. The line sets the terms regarding how and when your suit may be filed. If these mandates are not followed, you risk losing your chance to sue. The best action you can take following a cruise ship accident is to contact an experienced Iowa Personal Injury Attorney so your case is handled with the utmost care and caution.
