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.

We had the misfortune of being sued for fraud on the sale of a business. David Pollack navigated our defense expertly, professionally and with just the right amount of passion. Our case went all the way to trial and we truly believe we would not have won our case if not for David's tireless defense strategies and flawless execution. Sophie L.
