A Cruise to Nowhere:

The Massachusetts Bar Association publishes a book, “Traps for the Unwary.” That is a great title. There are many traps which can ensnare those who are unwary and even those who feel they are wary. One of the absolute trickiest involves cruise ships. Some people may be going on cruises at this time. They should be aware that often a passenger line will by contract provide only a one year statute of limitations on personal injury claims arising out of the travel on the cruise ship. A further complication is that the ticket may require the lawsuit to be brought in Miami’s Dade County. These restrictions, seemingly very unfair, have been upheld. Consequently, any cruise ship injury should result in the injured party’s consulting an attorney as quickly as possible. The restrictions seem almost incomprehensible. As to whether you should hire an attorney in Florida, please keep in mind an as yet to be published blog on the trickiness of handling cases in foreign jurisdictions (out-of-state jurisdictions, that is) despite opportunities for the lawyer to be admitted to practice for a particular case.
