Making a Claim for Cargo Damage on a Cruise Ship?

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

to discharge. If your cargo has been damaged or lost as the result of
cruise ship workers' negligence, contact the cruise ship injury lawyers
