A time of relaxation and rest on a cruise ship vacation can, unfortunately, go fatally wrong.
If you have lost a loved one due to an accident that occurred on or because of a cruise ship, you need skilled legal representation from a maritime wrongful death attorney with expertise in maritime law to help you seek restitution.
We understand the pain that you are experiencing, and we are committed to helping you achieve justice on behalf of your loved one. Importantly, recovered damages can help to provide for surviving family members, spouses and children.
Maritime Wrongful Death Suits
Wrongful death suits are often hollow in that they will not bring back a loved one or return things to the way they were before. They are, however, the only means by which the law allows reparation in non-criminal causes of death.
At the Law Offices of Charles D. Naylor, we understand the deep intricacies of maritime law and can guide you through the avenues needed to seek restitution. Our wrongful death lawyers are highly successful in these cases and have brought wrongful death suits in excess of $50 million for a single wrongful death lawsuit including punitive damages.
Wrongful death generally means a lawsuit is filed by a wrongful death lawyer when the wrongful conduct of a person or entity results in the death of another person. This can include premises liability, trucking disasters to dangerous products on the market. A wrongful death action allows surviving family members bring a lawsuit for the wrongful actions.
Various types of monetary damages may be recovered in a wrongful death action after careful assessment of the merits of the case as well as the potential damages, including loss of companionship, sorrow and grief, which may be sought in such an action. In some cases, punitive damages are available which are meant to punish a defendant for intentional or egregious conduct.
In 2007, the Law Offices of Charles D. Naylor successfully brought a wrongful death lawsuit to trial against DaimlerChrysler for the wrongful death of a longshore worker, resulting in a jury verdict in excess of $50 million including punitive damages and $24 million final settlement.
