When you board a cruise ship for a tour, you are entrusting your safety into the cruise company’s hands. While you’ll be expected to exercise a certain amount of caution and common sense, the cruise line is there to ensure that your trip is as enjoyable and safe as possible. However, that is not always the case. Accidents do occur on cruise ships. Whether due to bad luck, human error, or sheer negligence, you can find yourself sustaining injuries on a cruise ship.
Florida law places the responsibility for passenger injury aboard a ship solely on the cruise line. This means that as long as a passenger’s injury can be attributed to any factor relating to the cruise line, such a passenger has a right to file a lawsuit against the said company.

It’s crucial to seek immediate medical attention. Most importantly, passengers should never forget to report any accident or injury sustained aboard the ship. This ensures that there is a record of what happened. A “lack of reported incident” is a common defense used by cruise lines when they’re faced with a lawsuit due to passenger injury aboard their ship. Never let your personal injury claim against a cruise line be jeopardized because you failed to report an injury to the authorities.

While you seek medical attention for your injuries, it’s crucial to reach out to cruise ship accident attorneys with experience in handling cruise ship injury cases. Given how complex cruise ship injury cases can become, it’s important to ensure that the attorney you choose is permitted to practice in Federal Court.
