In the 1800s, all of our commerce flowed on the ocean. Because of that, there is a body of law called admiralty and maritime law. Admiralty and maritime law applies to vessels and navigation. People who are injured on cruise lines are often subject to he vagaries of judge made law that dates back to decisions that are as early as the 1800s. In order to be able to bring a case against a cruise line, you typically end up in federal court. You need a lawyer who’s experienced with the nuances of that law, so that your claim is properly perfected.
