How Can Crew Members Get Legal Help From a Lawyer If They Were Hurt While Working On A Cruise Ship


Let’s face it, if you are (or were) a crew member on a cruise ship and were hurt while working on the cruise ship, you will likely need the help of a cruise ship injury law firm.

It is important to realize that as a crew member on Carnival Cruise Line, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Princess or other cruise lines, you do have legal rights AND can file an injury claim against your employer.

We speak to crew members to have been injured working in cruise ship restaurants, as cabin attendants, cleaning staff and various other jobs. Common injuries to crew members are back problems – herniated disks, slipped disks and more. Knee, hand and shoulder injuries are quite common as well.

We help crew members from all around the world – Slovenia, Philippines, England, Taiwan, Hungary, Lithuania, Poland, Greece and many other countries. Many cruise lines have headquarters in the United States and that is why we can help.

Often, these injuries (while painful and severe) require surgery, hospitalization and time off work. Treatment by a doctor can cost money that the crew member does not have. We’ve also talked to some crew members who have been dismissed from their duties for being hurt – or forced to continue working while hurt!

What crew members soon realize iss that dealing with the cruise lines directly is frustrating and they are unable to get the real compensation they deserved for their injury.

Quite often, an accident occurred because of the negligent action of the cruise line and it’s procedures. The injury the crew member sustained was not the their fault, yet they were the ones to suffer…and then were left to deal with the cost and pain associated with their injury.

We just don’t believe that’s fair!
