Making a Claim for Cargo Damage on a Cruise Ship?

Work with a Board Certified Marine Law Attorney in Miami

Claims for cargo shipped for international commerce are governed by certain laws and regulations, such as those covered in the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act (COGSA). Under this act, ship owners are liable for cargo that is damaged from "hook to hook," or in other words, from loading to discharge. If your cargo has been damaged or lost as the result of cruise ship workers' negligence, contact the cruise ship injury lawyers at Cassidy & Black, P.A. today!
