Standing Up To Cruise Ship Owners And Operators
Cruise ship owners and operators aggressively contest maritime injury claims, even when their negligence caused the accident. If you were injured as a passenger on a cruise ship, you should talk with an experienced maritime injury attorney as soon as possible.
Tabak, Mellusi & Shisha will act quickly to initiate legal action. Our New York City cruise ship injury attorneys will investigate the accident, establish the liability of the responsible parties and seek maximum compensation for you at trial or in settlement negotiations.
Even if your cruise ship never docked at a U.S. port, you may still be able to obtain compensation. You also have rights if you were injured on a shore excursion in the U.S. or a foreign country. Whether your injury was the result of a dangerous shipboard condition, the misconduct of a crew member or another cause, Tabak, Mellusi & Shisha can represent you.
