If you have sustained injuries in a boating accident - whether on a personal watercraft, cruise ship or a commercial boat - a complex set of laws govern filing a lawsuit and obtaining compensation. It is critical to contact a experienced California boat accident lawyer to advise you regarding your rights.
Many times a combination of laws govern when a lawsuit must be filed, where it can be filed, and who may be found responsible. When cruise ships are involved, a contract may exist requiring you to file your lawsuit in a specific state. If the cruise ship originates out of a foreign country, it may be necessary to look to international law.
