Cruise Ship Injuries

Cruise Ship Attorneys

Cruise ships have been in the news lately because of fires aboard the vessel, or worse. If you have suffered an injury on a cruise ship, anywhere in the world, you may be entitled to seek compensation for medical expenses and lost earnings, as well as additional money for punitive damages, in the event of gross negligence on the part of the vessel owner and operator. Do not delay! Often cruise ship tickets will require you to notify the cruise company of your intention to make a claim soon after you are hurt. Speak to us today to learn more about your rights.

Don't Count on the Insurance Company

The insurance adjuster for the ship or vessel owner will try to tell you that you don't have a claim. No doubt they may even point to the waiver of indemnity you signed before you stepped on board. The truth is, indemnity waivers don't release the boat owner or operator from negligence. You may still be entitled to damages if you can show that negligence of the vessel owner contributed to the accident.
