INSIDER PERSPECTIVE

An avid traveler, Mr. Charlip and his wife, who is a cruise line executive, have taken cruises throughout the world on many and varied cruise lines and, as such, Mr. Charlip has first-hand knowledge. Such experience is invaluable in comparing how different cruise lines address standard issues such as, tour management, warnings about wet surfaces, passenger safety warnings, ship’s security and many similar issues.

WHAT TO EXPECT IF YOU HAVE A CASE

Evaluating and hiring an attorney for your case requires an initial consultation over the phone at no cost to you. After the initial free consultation you can determine if you may have a case and if coming into the office is necessary. If you do not live near the office, everything can be done remotely. During your initial consultation, your attorney will want to learn as much information as possible relating to the incident surrounding your case. This includes information regarding you cruise line, any medical treatment, who else was involved, any witnesses, your insurance coverage if any, and information about your circumstances.

  • In choosing an attorney, make sure that their experience fits your circumstances
  • Be sure to discuss all of your legal options during the consultation and ask any questions you want to know
  • Come prepared by writing down all of the circumstances that led to your injury or situation
  • After your initial consultation, you will need to decide if you want to hire the attorney

After you decided to hire your attorney and you have signed a retainer contract, they will begin investigating your case. This process is called “discovery”, which consists of 3 forms of discovery – written, document production and depositions.

Written discovery involves questions about the facts of your case. Document discovery is the gathering of any documents related to your case, electronic or printed. Any party has the right to see documents that are related to your case. Depositions are sworn statements, and you can likely expect to be deposed to get the facts.

  • Your attorney may ask you to sign medical release forms so that they can have access to your medical records.
  • It is important to start your case ASAP, as with time facts get blurry and witnesses become harder to find.
  • Be honest every time. Lying in a deposition can cause you to lose the case.

A settlement is when the person who is filing the lawsuit agrees not to pursue legal action in return for an agreed upon amount of money. Most lawsuits end in settlement. In deciding whether or not to settle, there are many factors to consider:

  • Based on your case, how likely are your chances of winning at trial
  • How expensive can it be to pursue legal action and how long litigation will last
  • How much money your attorney thinks you can win in damages in court vs. the settlement amount
  • What are the policy limits of the defendant’s insurance policy, and many other factors.

If a settlement is agreed upon, at Charlip Law Group we expedite the process to get you relief as quickly as possible AND at maximum case value!  Give us a call 24/7 to set up a free consultation at 305-257-9498 or fill out the form below.  We look forward to hearing from you!
