cruise ship passengers, seamen and

included in cruise contracts.
The Death on the High Seas Act (DOHSA) gives families the right to recover
damages for wrongful death caused by negligence or the unseaworthiness
of a vessel while in international waters. The Florida Wrongful Death

to sue for damages, including those who died while in Florida state territorial waters.
Helping You Move Forward
