We recently conversed with a passenger aboard a Carnival Cruise Ship about a medical incident that occurred that left the passenger utterly confused about their rights — both as sick passenger on the cruise ship and as a passenger with a complaint about their treatment by Carnival during and after the cruise.
The patient’s questions centered around:
– an incompetent nurse and denied access to see the doctor
– being told they were possible non-compliant with CDC regulations and could face legal actions
– a cruise ship’s doctor bill
– questions about the ‘entire vacation’ being ruined
– Carnival asking for 3-5 weeks to gather medical documentation….
It’s not uncommon for injured cruise ship passengers to feel like the are getting the ‘run around’ from the big cruise lines. In fact, quite often they are as the cruise line can make it difficult to file injury claims, communicate efficiently and get satisfactory outcomes after an accident.
This leaves many cruise passengers wondering ‘what to do next’ — should they call a lawyer? How does that work?
We talk to injured passengers all of the time and it’s our job to help advise them about the ‘next steps’ that are available to them and what the legal process might entail.
