If you were hurt in a cruise ship accident, it may be weeks or even several months before you decide that you should consider filing an injury claim against the cruise line of the ship where the accident occurred.
After more than 25 years of representing injured cruise ship passengers, we’ve found that many of these passengers are more focused on ‘dealing with their injury – seeing doctors, having surgery, undergoing rehab and physical therapy, etc. (and rightfully so).
Should I file an injury claim?
And while they’re frustrated about the pain and inconvenience – or in many cases, dealing with life-changing injuries – the last thing on their mind is, “should I sue the cruise line for financial compensation?”
The best way to determine the answer to that question is to speak with an experienced cruise ship injury attorney. They can help you better understand what your options are for filing an injury claim and pursuing a lawsuit against the cruise line. By asking questions about your injury, they can quickly evaluate whether you have a viable case.
They can help you deal with most cruise lines including Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Disney, Princess and others.
In fact, once its agreed that you have grounds for a claim (and agree to hire the attorney), the attorney can then represent you in your case. From there, they will handle all of the dealings with the cruise line’s representatives.
This representation is often comforting as it allows the injured passenger to focus on getting better. It’s also comforting to know that experienced lawyers are taking up your cause and are fighting for you.
**It’s important to note that, after an injury, contacting a lawyer quickly is a good idea. Many cruise line require that injury claims that are filed against them, be done within six months to a year.
