Miami-Dade County Personal Injury Attorney Serving Clients Nationwide
If you have been injured on a cruise, while at a hotel or a place of business, or if you have become the victim of a criminal or sexual assault, you should follow these steps:
- Report the incident to a manager or supervisor, not just any staff member.
- If your injury is due to a criminal attack, assault or rape, call law enforcement officials immediately and complete a report.
- Do not give statements to insurance adjusters or risk management.
- Seek medical attention and an evaluation from a doctor right away.
- If there were witnesses, gather names and phone numbers if possible.
- Then, call our law firm so we can explain how you can protect your rights.
The statute of limitations for these personal injury cases is four years, but for cruise line cases it is one year. Meaning, if you wait, you will forfeit your rights to claim.
