I just returned from a three day trip to Montego Bay.
My co-counsel, Jonathan Aronson, and I met with several of our clients who were seriously injured while working for Miami based cruise lines and have been languishing in Jamaica after being dumped back at home. Seeing our clients, in their local communities, with their kids, brings a sense of reality and urgency to our relationship with them.
We visited the port in Freeport / Montego Bay, the new Royal Caribbean development in Falmouth (more about that to come later), and headed over to Ocho Rios to meet the family of one of our clients who needs surgery after a cruise line accident.
A good trip.
The country of Jamaica is beautiful. Its people are filled with courtesy and generosity.
Over the course of the next week, we will talk about some of our experiences in Jamaica, and the relationship of this proud Caribbean country with the Miami-based cruise industry.
