Injured on a Cruise Ship?
Let Our Norfolk Maritime Accident Lawyers Help You
As Norfolk cruise ship accident lawyers with decades of experience helping the victims of negligence pursue justice and compensation, we’re familiar with all the tricks cruise lines use to limit their liability. Most cruise lines give passengers limited time to file personal injury suits. They use complicated legalese in the fine print of your travel documents to protect themselves. They often blame you for your injury, claiming that you were reckless or irresponsible.
Our Norfolk cruise accident lawyers are your protectors against these tactics. We know the law, and we can help you. Call Kalfus & Nachman PC at (855) 880-8163 for a free case evaluation.
Protect Your Health, Protect Your Rights
As a cruise ship passenger, there are some things you can do to protect yourself. The steps you take after suffering an injury on board a cruise ship might prove crucial later when your cruise accident lawyer is pursuing your claim.
After suffering an injury, you should:
- Seek medical attention: The most important thing after your injury is to get the medical care you need. Visit the ship’s doctor immediately and get treatment for your injury or condition.
- Document the situation: In the law, information is crucial. The more your cruise accident lawyer knows, the better. So get all the information you can about the accident. Report the incident to the cruise line and get a copy of the incident report. Get copies of all the medical records generated by the ship’s doctor. If the environment played a role in the accident, get photographs of the scene. And get the contact information of all witnesses.
- Don’t be intimidated: The cruise line might try and intimidate you into signing away your rights. They might tell you the accident was your fault or that you don’t have a right to pursue a claim. Don’t listen, and don’t sign anything without a lawyer present.
- Speak to a cruise accident lawyer: Finally, you should come to our offices as soon as you can. The statute of limitations for cruise ship accidents is strict, and you don’t want to waste any time. Our initial consultations are completely free and come with no obligations.
The cruise lines have a lot of high-powered attorneys at their disposal. You should have experienced advocates fighting for you.
