For more than 25 years, Spencer Aronfeld has successfully represented injured passengers in claims against Silversea Cruise Line. We believe that the most important legal obstacle that an injured passenger faces in making a claim against Silversea Cruises is to preserve their legal rights by filing their claims timely in the United States Federal Court in Miami. Silversea, like most international cruise lines, requires that passenger injury lawsuits be filed within one year of the date of the incident.
Accordingly, we urge anyone who has been involved in an accident while on their Silversea Cruise to consult with an experienced maritime attorney. Important evidence such as CCTV footage of the incident, maritime data regarding the wind and wave conditions, and the names of witnesses and crewmembers are often lost or difficult to locate with the passage of time.
The sooner a claim can be initiated the better the result for our clients will be. Therefore, we file passenger injury lawsuits against Silversea for various types of accident claims as soon as possible.
The most common cases against Silversea involve people who have slipped or tripped on the ship’s deck, in their cabins, on the pool deck or at one of the buffets. With injuries ranging from broken arms and legs to more serious head, neck and brain injuries often resulting in lost wages, astronomical medical expenses, and pain & suffering. Injuries can also occur on the various shore excursions offered by Silversea Cruises, and getting on and off tender boats that transport passengers from cruise ships to ports.
It is important to understand that not every injury sustained on a Silversea cruise ship is by definition a case. Simply because someone gets hurt on a cruise ship does not mean that it is necessarily the cruise line’s fault. One must prove that the accident was caused in whole or in part by the cruise line.
