Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2012
Miami-based maritime law firm Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A. has announced the launch of a new Smartphone app designed to assist victims who have suffered an accident or sustained injuries aboard a cruise ship.
Victims of personal injury or negligence accidents are often impeded from seeking help, either because their wounds have rendered them incapacitated or because they did not have the adequate resources at hand to request assistance.
Accidents that take place at sea are exponentially more difficult to report and track, especially when victims don’t have access to a phone or the Internet. Victims don’t always get the proper medical attention they deserve and those responsible for the incidents may not come forward to admit wrongdoing, leaving those who were injured and their loved ones unable to seek damages for their pain and suffering.
Having recognized an increased need for cruise ship safety, the cruise accident lawyers at Lipcon have created a way for cruise ship accident victims to keep track of and report claims.
Already establishing themselves as pioneers in the field of admiralty and maritime law, the cruise injury lawyers at the firm have broken new ground with the revolutionary application. Not only is the law firm the first in its field to release a Smartphone application, but the aptly titled “Cruise Ship Lawyer” app is the first of its kind as well.
The app comes equipped with convenient, easy to use features that will provide assistance to those who have suffered an accident while on a cruise.
Cruise Ship Lawyer allows users to record data regarding the accident, submit a free case evaluation form, track injury-related expenses, provide proof of medical insurance, and even lets users use make international calls on Skype while they are out at sea.
In addition to its extensive and innovative features, the cruise lawyer App also locates nearby hospitals and includes a built-in flashlight, which can be used during emergency situations aboard a ship.
While Lipcon, Margulies, Alsina & Winkleman, P.A. created Cruise Ship Lawyer, use of the application does not constitute an attorney-client relationship.
