Florida is known world-wide as a hub of recreation and tourist activity. Seafarers from across the globe take to the beautiful waters surrounding the peninsula during personal vacations, sporting expeditions and everyday family fun. Maritime activity is not always smooth sailing, however. Cruise ship accidents sometimes put a damper on a person’s R&R. A question often asked in the aftermath of personal injury suffered in a sea-voyage accident is “Should I pursue legal action in the matter?”
At Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A., we help those who have been injured in boating accidents. Whether you were sailing on a friend’s private craft or were a paid ticket holder on a major cruise line when the accident occurred, you are entitled to seek compensation for damages if your injury was caused by another person’s negligence. As a passenger on a seafaring vessel, you have the right to reasonably expect that the ship’s owners have ensured a safe and secure atmosphere on your behalf.
Injuries range from mild to catastrophic. Those suffering the latter often require long-term medical care and daily living assistance that can result in tremendous financial debt. A successfully litigated claim can provide court-awarded compensation for use in offsetting some or all of those costs. Panter, Panter & Sampedro, P.A. is prepared to help you seek the maximum possible recovery for your losses.
Cruise ship accidents, as well as those involving smaller private crafts, can turn adventure into disaster that leaves victims wondering where to turn for legal help. Those in the Florida area can call our office to request consultation with an experienced attorney. Our dedicated team is committed to helping you resolve your legal issues and achieve your goals in court so that you can move forward in life and focus on your recovery.
