Understanding cruise Ship Injury Settlements
If you were hurt in a cruise ship accident and are considering filing an injury claim, you may also be interested to know about cruise ship injury settlements and what happens after you file a lawsuit. The injury settlement is the amount of money the cruise ship company will pay you if it can be proven that your injuries were directly caused by the negligence of the cruise line, it’s employees or potentially a third party associate with the cruise line.
An experienced cruise ship injury lawyer can represent you during the claims process. After an initial injury claim and demand letter are made, which outlines your injuries and your reasons for wanting compensation, you may receive a settlement offer from the cruise line. The claims process could take some time – weeks or months even – as both parties collect information related to the case.
Most likely, a settlement will be offered by the cruise line rather than going to court. Again, an experienced attorney will help you navigate the settlement negotiation and advise you on your chances of success in the courtroom for a injury verdict if a settlement offer is not desirable to you. Cruise ship injury settlement amounts can range from just a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars or even millions of dollars depending on the severity of your injuries and the factors involved with your case.

Average Settlement Amounts from Cruise Ship Injury Lawsuits
There is no “average settlement for cruise ship injuries.” It’s important to understand that all cruise related accidents, injuries and medical negligence cases differ. Each case is unique and because of this, there is no industry standard for settlements. The circumstances of your individual case will determine what your settlement will be.
For example, a teenage cruise ship passenger who stumbles, falls and breaks their arm in the cruise ship’s pool area may incur a variety of medical bills, but overall, this could be a minor injury. A 50 year old man who suffered the exact same injury may require a different set of medical procedures, a longer healing time, missed work opportunities and more.
Even what seems like a simple broken arm can results in a complicated set of details which impact your injury settlement. Your attorney will help you understand what’s involved in your case, often on the first phone call with the attorney. *These scenarios assume the cruise line was negligent in its actions or policies and that negligence was directly relate to your injuries.
how did the accident happen?
Was it a Simple Accident or Negligence?
Many accidents are simply ‘just accidents’ while other accidents are due to the negligence of the cruise line, its employees or even other entities associated with and promoted by the cruise line (like onboard medical personnel or excursion operators).
