“I slipped and fell on Carnival Cruise…”
This inquiry is a common one we receive at our law firm — common because it’s an accident that happened on a Carnival Cruise ship — and common that it was a slip and fall injury.
In this specific inquiry, the person was very concerned about what might happen in the future — even after they had gone through the recovery period of dealing with their injury. They were concerned about any problems with their health stemming from the incident and when it might be ‘too late to report’…
It is extremely important to speak with an attorney after an injury on a cruise ship. The cruise lines limit the time frame in which notice or complaint of an injury can be made (often within 6 months) and when a lawsuit would need to be filed against the cruise line (often within 1 year of the accident occurring).
For many injured passengers, they spend most of their time dealing with the injury and their recovery. It’s not until much later do they think about potentially finding out if the cruise line might be liable for their injury.
A good measure is to speak with an attorney right away — they can advise you as to whether you should pursue legal action.
