Meet attorneys Jason and Debi Chalik. They’ve lived in Florida for decades, and they’re passionate about serving members of their community. Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers is personally invested in your case because we’ve personally been affected by major cruise lines’ negligence.
Our loved ones were stranded aboard a cruise ship following a Covid-19 outbreak.

We’re intimately acquainted with how large cruise lines work and treat injured people––and we use this knowledge to your benefit.

Financial Recovery for Victims of Jacksonville Cruise Accidents
Our cruise ship accident lawyers serving Jacksonville will demand full compensation on your behalf. We will collect bills, receipts, and estimates that prove the value of your past and future medical bills and lost wages. We also demand financial recovery for any property damaged in the incident.
Non-economic damages are intangible and can be hard to document on your own. Our legal team will provide tangible proof of the value of your disabilities, disfiguring injuries, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Wrongful death damages include funeral and burial expenses and loss of your loved one’s income and domestic support. At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, we also demand damages for your loss of consortium, companionship, guidance, and support. We intend to recover the full cost of your injury-related damages, and not a penny less.
You Have a Limited Time to Seek Damages Following a Cruise Ship Accident
Florida has a statute of limitations on how long you have to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. In keeping with a recent adjustment to state law, you generally have as little as two years to file your lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11.
If your lawsuit is not filed on time, you could lose the right to file it at all. Even if you do manage to file your lawsuit late, it will be dismissed without its merits ever being heard in court. Either outcome will prevent you from holding the cruise line accountable.
Our law office works hard to meet all applicable deadlines on your behalf and avoid these costly consequences. To preserve your right to compensation, we encourage you to contact us at your earliest convenience.
