Our firm was recently contacted by a passenger who had cruised with Royal Caribbean.
During an accident on the cruise ship, she dislocated her ankle.
Naturally, this ruined the remainder of the vacation as she had to limit her walking. After arriving back home the passenger contacted our office for more information.
Examples like this one above are common. At our cruise injury law firm in Miami, injured passengers reach out to us by phone, email and through our website on a daily basis.
They’re key concern is — “I’m injured and I want to know if I can be compensated for my injuries.”
That compensation helps cover the obvious costs associated with being injured, like…
>> hospital visits
>> doctor visits
>> cost of medication
>> lost time at work/lost wages
It’s also helps these passengers deal with the non-monetary issues:
>> pain and anguish
>> impact on quality of life
>> loss of sleep
>> loss of time spent with family and friends
And these are just a few examples.
If an unmarked wet floor was the culprit for the accident and the cruise line was at fault, the passenger might have a good reason to sue.
Her injuries may have prohibited her from working for a period of time. They may have limited her mobility, either short term or long term. She may have incurred hundreds or thousands of dollars of medical bills.
What we find when talking to our clients is that each and every accident is unique — as is the impact of the injury upon their lives.
The best course of action for most passenger who are hurt is to talk to an attorney. They can help you determine if your injury is eligible for compensation and will answer specific questions you have about your accident.
