Are there time limits to file my florida cruise ship accident lawsuit?

Transcript

One of the most important distinctions between a traditional personal injury case and a cruise ship injury case, is the very strict deadline that’s set by Congress and the cruise ship industry for filing a claim. You have one year in almost every case from the time that the injury occurs until the time that you file a lawsuit or else your claim will be forever barred.

Now, one year can seem like a long time. However, when you take into account that once you get off the cruise ship, you have to treat with the doctor for several months, you have to prepare your case and find witnesses, one year will move very quickly so it’s very important that you find an attorney and that you start preparations for your case as soon as possible when you leave the cruise ship.
