After Boating Accident, San Francisco Cruise Ship Set to Sail

San Francisco news reports that the Carnival Cruise Ship damaged after catching fire during a voyage in November will set sail out of its San Francisco port next week.

The ship's problems gained national attention after catching fire while out at sea. While no one was reported injured, passengers were stuck at sea for three days. Coast Guard assistance was required to bring in food, water, and medical supplies.

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.

For more information, or if you have been injured in any type of boating or cruise ship accident, contact the experienced Sacramento personal injury lawyers at the Law Office of Frederick J. Sette.
