Cruise ships are a good value for travel and entertainment enjoyed by many people each year. However many of those who take voyages on these vessels are unaware of the potential dangers and their rights. Cruise ship accidents are common, dangerous and can lead to extensive injuries. The corners cut in providing this relatively inexpensive travel are not fully realized until there is an injury, that injury many times caused by either the vessel’s safety not being up to the standards we expect in the United States (they are not subject to many of our laws), or enhanced by their medical personnel whose standards of care also are not up to the standards we expect in the United States. It is important to have a qualified attorney who deals with these types of injuries and understands them in the context of the admiralty or maritime law that controls them. Peter M. Commette, P.A. understands the handling of cruise ship accidents.

Cruise ships are a good value for travel and entertainment enjoyed by many people each year. However many of those who take voyages on these vessels are unaware of the potential dangers and Peter M. Commette, P.A., a resort accident lawyer, can help when you have been injured at a hotel or resort. Florida and the Caribbean Islands are known for lavish resorts, which is why many people visiting Florida or the islands spend time at these magnificent but surprisingly dangerous establishments. Because the Florida resorts see so much tourism traffic, coupled with a harsh environment of sand, salt air, humidity, UV rays and employees from other cultures who are not used to and who do not honor our standards of care in the United States, tourists often sustain serious damages. Worse yet, the Caribbean resorts think that they are beyond the reach of the standards of care that we expect and require in the United States, so that, in addition to the same harsh environment and different cultural standards, the design, construction and maintenance of their facilities are not up to the par that they should be, and that they pretend to have in their advertisements. As a result, tourists often sustain serious injuries. If you have been injured when visiting a resort or hotel in Florida or the Caribbean Islands, Peter M. Commette, P.A. is here to guide you through the legal process.
A landowner can be found negligent if the landowner is aware of or should be aware of a damaged area of his property, or the landowner ignores a request to repair damaged areas of property. However, if the problems have been addressed and repaired to code in a reasonable amount of time, the landowner probably will not be found negligent. Laws limiting landowners liabilities are well defined and difficult to prove in a Florida courtroom. Expert legal counsel is the best option for discovering any circumstances a landowner may be found negligent. It is easy to stress about legal matters when you work with poor legal counsel. You can avoid any problems by choosing expert legal counsel that understands negligence law in Florida.
Personal Injuries can occur any place at any time, and unfortunately, they have a knack for occurring while people are enjoying their vacations. You might find yourself enjoying the luxury of a Foreign Resort and be faced with a vacation ending personal injury. Not only does the end of the vacation cause stress, but the lax personal care of the foreign resort can add substantial problems to medical care, legal attention, and proper safety protocols. During these circumstances, it is important to have legal counsel prepared to represent your best interests and take legal action against these foreign resorts for their lax personal care.
Personal injuries on cruise ships due to negligent or lax security occurs all the time. Cruise ships are not your friend when it comes to legal matters. Cruise ships have gorged themselves on the profit margin gained by maritime liability laws. When boarding a cruise ship, passengers will often write off their rights without even knowing because legal terms and jargon are meant for professionals to interpret, not vacation goers. The only way to combat the legal shield put up by cruise ships is to hire an experienced, professional attorney like Peter M. Commette, P.A.
