Do People Really Sue Cruise Lines?

do passengers sue cruise lines?

It may seem daunting, but passengers who were injured on a cruise ship can — and often do — sue the cruise line in order to be compensated for their injuries.

In fact, while it may not seem like something that happens often, it’s actually quite commonplace.

Passengers who once embarked on a what they thought would be an enjoyable vacation came home bruised, broken, hurt and angry. Many want the cruise lines to ‘pay for the accident.’

Our law firm in Miami focuses almost entirely on representing passengers who were hurt on a cruise and need legal help. Depending on the month, our office will receive dozens of calls and emails from passengers who are seeking information about

— how to sue a cruise line?

— answers to whether they can sue?

— how to file a lawsuit against a cruise line?

— how to get help for medical bills and lost time at work?

Really, the list goes on and on. Here are two actual inquiries we received recently:

Message: Slipped on tile deck, double fracture of left tibia…


Message: The board in the bathroom stall fell on me… I have been in pain ever since…  I am disabled and because of this injury it’s making my everyday life harder… I would like to know if you can help?

We literally get inquiries like this almost daily. Passengers do get hurt on cruise ships.

Sometimes those accidents are simply just accidents — and through no fault of the cruise line. But often, the cruise ship or it’s employees is to blame.
