We live in a very specialized world. Most professional services have been broken down into many sub-specialties and engaging with the right one is the key to getting satisfactory results. You may not know that in the medical profession, ophthalmology now has at least ten sub-specialists ranging from retinal surgeons to doctors caring for cataract patients only.
The legal profession has also become very specialized because of new and more complex laws being enacted every day. The Law Firm of Lazarus and Lazarus, since our inception in 1992 has chosen to help people injured due to the negligence, carelessness, or malpractice of others. This is personal injury law and we believe it is an essential part of our community because it allows people to recover from devastating situations and hopefully return to a normal life. It is very rewarding for us and we are proud of the reputation we have earned over the past 26 years.
Our firm handles all types of personal injury cases but we have devoted special focus to these three areas:
• Automobile, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents and Injuries
• Cruise Ship Accidents and Injuries
• Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Errors and Injuries
There are very specific and unique guidelines for each of these areas, and someone without experience will likely be challenged to deliver a successful outcome if they pursue a case.
Cruise Ship Accidents and Injuries – If people are injured on a vessel at sea or on land at a port-of-call from the vessel, they are not subject to the same laws and may not have similar rights as U.S. citizens here within our borders. While away from the United States you may be dealing with International Maritime Law or the laws of a foreign country. A well-publicized case in 2013 is an example of why it’s important to have the right attorneys when there is cruise ship accident or incident:
In February of 2013 a cruise ship became disabled after an engine fire. Air-conditioning, toilets, and refrigeration were disabled and passengers experienced extreme distress, and many of them became sick. Their case to pursue compensation failed due to procedural errors and omissions by their legal team, and this is completely unacceptable. These victims should be able to recover from their experience with reasonable compensation for injuries, pain, and suffering.
Because of our proximity to the three largest cruise ports in the world we have been able to help many victims of cruise ship accidents, damages, and even crimes. We understand the laws, policies, and procedures necessary to be successful.
If you or someone you know has been victimized on a cruise ship or on land while at a port-of-call we can likely help. Please call us at (954) 356-0006 for a confidential and complimentary consultation.
