Cruise Ship Passenger Injuries

Cruise Ship Passenger Injuries

If you are an injured passenger on a cruise ship, your claim falls into a different system than an injury on land, such as a car accident. Injuries at sea are governed by different laws and require an experienced attorney who understands the ins and outs of maritime law.

Contact our cruise ship injury law firm today to schedule a free initial consultation at one of our offices in Seattle or Bellevue, Washington.

Don't Let Your Trip to Paradise Turn Into a Nightmare

Unlike other types of personal injury cases, in which the victim attempts to get compensation from an insurance company, we will help you make a claim directly to the cruise ship company. Also unlike other cases, such as those involving auto accidents, you only have one year to file your claim in court after a cruise line accident.

You Don't Have Time to Waste

Cruise ships are very good at covering up evidence. If you have been injured on a cruise ship it is important to take pictures of the scene as soon as possible, fill out an injury report and get the names and addresses of any witnesses.

If that is not possible, you need to contact us as soon as you can. The sooner we get on your case, the sooner we can begin investigating the accident that caused your injuries.

How Were You Injured?

We handle a variety of cruise ship injury cases including slip-and-falls on slippery decks and dangerous or uneven surfaces, injuries during shore excursions, food and environmental illnesses, and many more. You have rights as a cruise ship passenger.

Regardless of how you were injured, you may be able to collect compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Call our Seattle office at 206.729.5252, or our Bellevue office at 425.454.3800, or contact our cruise ship passenger injury law office online for a free initial consultation.

There are very few people I trust in this world but John Merriam is at the top of my list he not only is a man of outstanding character and morals as well as honest but he truly cares about his clients well being and situation… Matthew
I lost most of my vision from an accident at sea. Gordon handled my case with motivation and haste that I could imagine would have been the way he would have handled it if it had been him who was injured. I was ver impressed by how much he cared and especially his work ethic. Andrew
Gordon helped me and family get through a very hard time. I was severely injured, and Gordon was able to settle my case for more than i was hoping for. If anything else happens he will be the first person I call. Kerrey
I very much appreciated the sense of urgency that Gordon Webb demonstrated as he handled my case. Emails and phone calls were returned almost instantly, questions were answered and solutions were offered. Gordon's firm came highly recommended and I am very pleased that I made the right choice to hire him. Maureen
