Quick Tips; What to do if You Are Injured on a Carnival Cruise Ship


It’s unfortunate, but accidents and injuries happen – even on Carnival Cruise Ships. If you’ve been hurt or injured while sailing with Carnival and believe that your injury was sustained due to the negligence of the crew or the cruise line itself, you may have a potential claim.

Yes, Carnival Might be Liable for Your Injury

Many passengers don’t even realize that the cruise line might be liable for injuries sustained while on the cruise. You may also not know that by filing a claim (assuming it can be proven the cruise line did something wrong) you can get a settlement or verdict against Carnival that will help pay for medical bills, missed time at work and other compensatory and punitive damages.

Common injuries might include:

  • Hurt by slip and fall injuries – by the pool, in the shower, down stairs
  • Broken bones – fingers, wrist, arms, ankles, legs
  • Concussions and head injuries
  • Shoulder and knee injuries
  • Back and herniated disk injuries
  • Infections and medical malpractice
  • Physical assault and battery

Yes – injuries are much more common on cruise ships than you might imagine! Though the cruise industry does not report injury statistics, our law firm answers calls every single day from passengers who have been injured. Often they are confused as to what actions to take.

The cruise line may have offered a free voucher for a future cruise, but that often doesn’t help a passenger who is dealing with painful injuries and mounting medical bills. *each case is different – it’s best to speak with an attorney who can help you understand the specific details of your potential case – and create a plan of action.
