Over a million people sail Alaskan coasts every year on cruise ships from Seattle alone. While these giant ships are stable and seaworthy, injuries and deaths still do occur to both passengers and crew members:
- Slip-and-fall injuries
- Trip-and-fall injuries
- Falling and sliding objects
- Assaults involving inadequate security
- Rape and sexual molestation
- Drownings and overboard incidents
- Accidents occurring during boarding
- Tender boat accidents
Accidents occurring at sea adhere are subject to a different set of laws than landborn injuries. Statutes of limitations tend to be shorter. Passengers must give written notice that they intend to file a claim. So you need a lawyer who is familiar with Jones Act claims, and the obstacles cruise lines throw up to minimize or deny compensation. At Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider, we represent tourists in all types of recreational accidents.
If you or someone you love has been injured or killed on a cruise ship, we can help you obtain financial compensation for your losses. Call the Law Offices of Michael J. Schneider at 907-290-7314 to schedule a no-charge, no-obligation case evaluation, or email us a description of your injuries.
