It’s unfortunate, but injuries caused from cruise ship accidents can affect any passenger — the elderly, parents, young adults and children.
One question we were asked recently was…
What do I do if my daughter was injured on a Carnival Cruise Ship?
For most passengers and family members, this is a question that is asked after the injury occurred and after the family has returned from their cruise vacation. And generally, it’s a question asked days, weeks or even months later after the injured person has received medical treatment.
Commonly, this is a question that’s asked after the injured person or family member realizes 3 things
1 – the injury was not their fault, and was likely the fault of the cruise line or its employees, and
2 – they’ve incurred emotional stress, medical bills and other financial hardships due to the injury
3 – trying to work with Carnival Cruise Line to get compensation for the injury is going nowhere…
The best thing to do? Contact a cruise line lawyer
The reality is that, if you or your family member were injured — and you believe the injury was due to the negligence of the cruise line — you should contact a lawyer.
The reason is that, as a cruise passenger, you do have legal rights.
An attorney is going to be able to tell you what those are — and why you might be eligible for compensation for injuries and costs incurred due to the injury.
— Yes. Many accidents do warrant filing an injury claim lawsuit.
— Yes. The cruise lines and their employees are often negligent in their actions…and these actions lead to injuries.
— Yes. Carnival Cruise Lines and other cruise lines are likely to treat your injury claim differently when an attorney is involved.
