The phrase “sue carnival cruise line” is still one of the most searched phrases that eventually lead visitors to our website (based on information from Google Analytics).
Each month, dozens of people search for “sue carnival cruise line” or “cruise ship injury lawyer” when they’ve either had an unpleasant experience on a Carnival Cruise Ship – OR – when they were hurt while traveling on a Carnival vessel.
Having a bad experience on a cruise ship (like experiencing poor customer service or being made to wait to disembark on an island due to bad weather) is generally not grounds for filing a lawsuit. Filing an injury claims generally happens when people suffer “real” injuries – broken ankles, medical emergencies, misdiagnosis of injuries, trips, falls, etc.
