Hearkening back to the law of yesteryear, it is the shipowner who is at fault or responsible in a Florida cruise line injury case. There are also circumstances where vessels are held under charter agreements or they are leased from one company to another. In those circumstances, the discovery process in the lawsuit may reveal the fact that there are more than one owner. There may in fact be more than one employer of the employees who are running around on the cruise vessel. If you’re bringing an action against a cruise line, it’s important to have an attorney who’s going to be able to ferret out who are the actual defendants, and who is actually responsible under federal admiralty law.
