Admiralty/Maritime/Cruise Claims for Passengers and Seamen
If you are a passenger or a seamen and are injured due to the negligence or actions of the cruise line, their employees or agents, during the cruise, a ship excursion or other incident, you have a right to file a claim for money damages under general maritime law and for ship employees, the Jones Act. This includes a claim for medical malpractice arising out of the medical care received onboard the ship by the ship’s doctors and any intentional acts of sexual battery by cruise line employees. Ship employees are also entitled to make a claim for maintenance and cure benefits. Below are just a few situations with which the Law Office of Scott M. Sandler can help:
