As the clock ticks on the statute of limitations for filing your cruise ship injury or sexual assault case, it is also extremely important that you remember that you must file your case in the correct jurisdiction.
When you board a cruise ship you agree to the so-called cruise contract or cruise ticket. This ticket includes various provisions, one of which being where you must file suit against the cruise line if you suffer an injury due to the cruise line’s negligence.
Many of the major cruise lines require passengers to file suit in Miami, Florida. This means that victims cannot file suit against the cruise lines in their local jurisdictions unless they happen to be local to Miami. Otherwise, victims are advised to work with an experienced Miami cruise injury attorney to file suit.
