Cruise Ship Passengers

Justice for you,no matter where you may be.

Grossman Law reaches across boundaries and countries

At Grossman Attorneys, we’ve represented cruise ship passengers who have sustained trips and falls in hot tubs, over fire door thresholds, changes in elevations, design defects, falling objects, shore side excursions and food poisoning/outbreaks of Norwalk Virus and Legionella.
