As devistating as an injury aboard a cruise ship can be, the death of a family member while a passenger or crew member raises many maritime legal issues. In such cases, depending on where the injury giving rise to the death occurred, whether on international waters, or state waters, certain long standing maritime laws can apply, such as the maritime statute of limitations, the notice requirements under your passenger cruise ticket, the forum selection clause, Death on the Highs Seas Act, or should a death occur on state waters, even the States’ Wrongful Death Statutes.

Navigating these issues requires the skill, knowledge, and experience of a maritime lawyer. Robert L Gardana, P.A. brings to your case, the untiring dedication of a highly skilled maritime attorney and captain.

As a result, they are now confronted with not only economic damages for medical and surgical expenses and loss of income, but pain and suffering, disfigurement, mental  anguish, and disability. When an injury producing incident occurs on a cruise ship or shore excursion, the maritime legal process can be daunting and requires the skill and experience of a board certified maritime attorney in order to navigate through the myriad of complicated legal issues surrounding this type of case.
