Failure to Act Quickly After a Cruise Ship Accident May Cost You Your Rights
As you know when you sign up for a cruise, there is a ton of paperwork you must fill out in order to go aboard. There is almost always some sort of disclaimer of rights contained in your contract that you should read carefully before signing. Often, cruise ship companies try to avoid responsibility for their own negligence and/or gross negligence by making you sign a waiver. These waivers may or may not be valid depending upon which law applies.
Additionally, cruise ship tickets shortening the statute of limitations to one year or less is another way cruise lines seek to limit or avoid responsibility for their actions. That is why is is critical that if you are injured while aboard a cruise ship, you immediately seek the advice of a cruise ship injury attorney to determine your rights.
