The Four Types of
Maritime Cases We Handle

ATTORNEY PROFILE

FRANK D. BUTLER is an attorney in the State of Florida for the past 22 years and is licensed in every Court in Florida, including all state and federal courts. Frank is an avid outdoor enthusiast and represents people injured in boating accidents and cruise ship injuries. You should be careful to hire an attorney who knows the issues specific to cruise ship cases and boating accidents.

I grew up in Florida and have been around the boating and marine industry my entire life. I have filed suit against all of the cruiselines that operate in Florida and have successfully handled boating cases throughout Florida. It’s what we do. Maritime law is very complex and you need to make sure that the attorney you choose has experience in handling these types of cases.

Many attorneys advertise for boating injury and cruise ship cases. See our “Very Important Information” under the Cruise Ship button and our “10 Things You Need To Know” under the Boating Accidents button. If the attorney you are considering cannot answer these questions, you should consider whether they actually handle these types of cases.

Why would an attorney just advertise for boating or cruise cases if they do not handle them? First, an attorney can refer your case to a maritime attorney and collect a referral fee. Second, an attorney can try to handle your boating or cruise ship claim even if they have never handled one at all. At our law firm we do not handle real estate law, bankruptcy, divorces, contracts, criminal law, probate, tax matters, medical malpractice, etc.

Your consultation with us is at absolutely no charge to you. There are no fees and no costs to you unless we win your case. See our Cruise Ship button and Boating Accidents button for very important information you should know regarding your claim. Maritime law imposes shorter statutes of limitation than most state courts.

Is Carnival Watching You On Their Website

IS CARNIVAL WATCHING PEOPLE ON ITS WEBSITE?

According to a class action lawsuit filed on November 10, 2020, the answer is “Yes”. The suit was filed in California and is seeking class action status based upon the allegations that Carnival is using software to follow and copy your keystrokes while on their website. The title of the civil lawsuit is: Daniel Onn v. Carnival Corp., and Mouseflow, Case 5:20-cv-07929. Mouseflow is apparently a software company, which according to the lawsuit provides tracking abilities of website visitors for companies who hire Mouseflow. Carnival is said to be one of those companies.

While the initial description of the following-you-around may sound innocuous the lawsuit claims the intrusion is much more than just watching your keystrokes. The lawsuit claims Carnival through Mouseflow would have the following ability: 

Mouseflow’s software created a video capturing Plaintiff’s keystrokes and mouse clicks on the website, as well as Plaintiff’s location and device type. All of this information was intercepted in real time and disclosed to Mouseflow. While visiting carnival.com, Plaintiff was unaware that his keystrokes, mouse clicks, and other electronic communications, including the information described above, were being intercepted in real-time and disclosed to Mouseflow, nor did Plaintiff consent to the same.

Of interest to us at 888-BOATLAW is not only the information specifically alleged to be obtained but what is meant by the Defendant being able to intercept “other electronic communications”?  For instance if a person was on the Carnival website and left it open, does the software then capture all other keystrokes, clicks, other website visited, and other personal data just because a user still has the Carnival website open? If the answer to this question is “Yes” the software captures everything, then that takes the intrusion to an entirely higher level. 

We will update this as we learn more information.
