Passengers often ask our cruise ship injury lawyers if the cruise lines will offer compensation for an injury.
The simple answer is “yes” though that compensation is dependent on a variety of factors.
First and foremost, it will need to be proven that an injury did occur and that the cruise ship company or its crew members played a role in that injury. An experienced cruise lawyer can help determine whether negligence played a role in your injury and whether a claim or lawsuit is appropriate.
Compensation for an injury can help pay for:
- Medical bills
- Costs of surgery
- Rehabilitation and ongoing treatment
- Doctor visits
- X-rays and medicine
Many injured passengers are also eligible for compensation for their pain and suffering which can be terrible after a severe injury on a cruise vacation.
