Accident and injuries caused by negligence are relatively common aboard Carnival Cruise ships. While unfortunate, the reality is that with so many people traveling on cruise ships each year, accidents do happen. Sometimes they are “just accidents” and sometimes, negligent actions by the cruise line, the crew or others play a role in the accident.
When a passenger feels that the actions (or inaction) of the cruise line contributed to their injury, that’s when they begin searching for help from a cruise ship injury lawyer.
It’s important to know that, if you were injured on a cruise, you do have legal rights and opportunities to file complaints against the cruise line.
