Paul Ansel is a cruise ship slip and fall lawyer with over 40 years experience. His office is close to both the cruise ship port of the world, Miami and Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. One of the main cruise ship injuries is from slip and fall accidents. “The ship is moving, people are drinking, waves are up and the decks can become slippery, stairways can become dangerous especially for senior travelers” Says Ansel, who has handled hundreds of cruise ship injuries. The Florida Maritime Injury Law Center handles cruise ship injuries on cruise ships embarking from Florida ports. The main ports are Port of Miami and Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. Other Florida ports we handle cruise ship injuries embarking from are: Cape Canaveral, Port Canaveral and Tampa, Tampa Port Authority. Ansel handles cruise ship injury and slip and fall injury on American Cruise Lines, Carnival Cruise Lines, Celebration Cruise Lines, Celebrity Cruises, Costa Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Cunard Line, Discovery Cruises, and Disney Cruise Line.
According to Ansel” Cruise ships must take reasonable care of their passengers. There are times when they fail to carry out their duties and passengers slip and fall, sustaining injuries ranging from bruises and skin tears to traumatic brain injury, broken bones, head injuries, neck and back trauma, hip fractures, spinal injury and even death. In many of these cases the Cruise Line can be held liable for their negligence and a lawsuit can be brought. Money settlements compensate victims for their medical expenses, pain and suffering, time off work, loss of income and resulting permanent injury.
Ansel explains” If you are an injured cruise ship passenger you must file your slip and fall injury lawsuit quickly. There is a 3 year statue of limitations rule that applies. An exception that gives extra rights to the defendant and takes rights from an injured passenger says that a passenger can put a provision in the passenger ticket requiring a six month notice of injury provision of the injury claim and requiring law suit within one year of the date of the injury. Every passenger ticket has this provision, and it is necessary to save your passenger ticket”.
Ansel also advise us that “Recently, a bill known as the Cruise Vessel Security and Safety Act has been signed into law. The law was created in order to protect cruise ship passengers from sexual assaults, theft, and other dangers.”
