How Long Do I Have to File a Florida Cruise Ship Accident Case?

The time limit for filing your cruise ship accident case is written into your passenger ticket. Most cruise lines give you a one year time period from the date of your accident to file your lawsuit. That's different from most land-based accidents, which are typically a longer period of time. It's important that you look at your cruise ticket, and see what the time is for filing your lawsuit, and that you get a lawyer who is familiar with maritime and cruise ship cases, so that your rights are protected.
