Cruise Accident Lawyers: Cruises Departing from Los Angeles Port
Nobody enjoys thinking about the worst case scenarios when planning a vacation, and cruises are no exception. The unfortunate reality is on some occasions, negligence on the part of major cruise companies leads to accidents or injuries for their passengers.
The experienced cruise injury attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey work tirelessly to help victims of cruise ship negligence, making sure our clients receive the fair and just compensation they deserve. It is not about making money off of a tragedy – it is about making sure that you are able to pay your medical bills, cover lost wages, and adequately handle any other expenses incurred during recovery so that you can get back to your regular life without even more struggle. Compensation also holds cruise lines accountable for their mistakes and helps to prevent others from suffering the same fate you did.
Of course, the vast majority of cruise ship passengers return home safely with nothing but happy memories of their experience. Careful planning and research can ensure a safe, relaxing, and fun cruise. A crucial element of planning is learning about your home port. For many on the West Coast, that means the Port of Los Angeles.
Why choose to embark from Los Angeles? Over 1 million passengers are carried in and out of L.A.’s World Cruise Center every year. The Center is located in the San Pedro Bay. Carnival cruisers may also leave from the nearby Long Beach Cruise Terminal, a smaller cruise port that sits on the waters of San Pedro as well.
The Cruise Center is only a 30 minute drive from L.A.’s downtown. For nearby attractions, visitors will want to check out the scenic Cabrillo Beach, where there is public swimming, boating, and fishing. The Cruise Center is also a short walk away from the historic battleship the USS Iowa, a relic from World War II that has been converted into a floating museum.Whale-watching tours are also popular excursions from December through March, during the annual migration of humpback whales.
