We Help Hurt Cruise Ship Passengers
Working with a cruise line to file an injury claim can be a complicated and frustrating process, especially when you try to do it alone. The best results generally come when an injured passenger hires a lawyer to help with their case.
We help passengers by representing them, by using our knowledge of the laws and regulations surrounding cruise injury claims and by utilizing our specific experience dealing with cruise ship accidents
We are available for consultation regarding personal injury claims and will speak with you even if you are unsure about whether you have a valid claim or not. Many passengers don’t even realize they can sue a cruise line until the talk with a lawyer.
Most importantly, we help injured passengers get:
- Compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering
- Payments for doctor’s bills, surgery and other medical bills
- Money for missed time at work or lost wages
Accidents are More Common Than Most People Believe
Accidents can occur aboard the ship, in cabins or bathrooms, on stairways, on wet or slippery decks, because of defective equipment and as a result of assaults by crew members. They can also occur off the ship, on gangways, getting on or off tenders or even during shore excursions.
Common injuries include:
- Neck and back injuries, bulging and herniated disks
- Knee injuries
- Broken legs, ankles, wrists and arms
- Concussions and head injuries
- Internal injuries
- A variety of ‘slip and fall’ related injuries
People are Hurt and Injured on All Cruise Lines
It is unfortunate, but with more than 20 million passengers traveling on cruise ships each year, accidents and related injuries are bound to happen.
They happen on all cruise lines including Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Celebrity, Disney Cruises, Princess Cruises and Holland America as well as other cruise ship lines.
Lawyers who work for the cruise lines are continually dealing with claims from injured passengers. It’s important to note that the cruise lines will work very hard to delay, avoid or minimize potential claims so they don’t have to pay money and admit fault. And that is one of the main reasons why passengers and their families hire cruise ship injury lawyers to represent them.
