Cruise Line Responsibility: Holding Them Accountable for Passenger Safety

AVAILABLE 24/7, CALL US AT 1-866-597-4529

Cruise lines are responsible for the injuries that passengers sustain on and off the ship. Florida law is clear that cruise lines have a non-delegable responsibility to make sure that passengers are safe when being transported between the ship and shore.

If you have been injured on a cruise ship, tender or in port, it is important that you seek immediate medical care and report the incident. Cruise lines often defend cases based upon a “lack of reported incident.” Also, immediately consult with an experienced passenger injury lawyer who is admitted to practice in Federal Court.


Often an injured passenger returns home and several months pass before a local attorney is even consulted. If that attorney is unfamiliar with how to proceed in a cruise ship injury case, they inadvertently jeopardize the client’s right to compensation by not filing the law suit in the correct court within the prescribed one-year time limit.

Yes. You could sue a cruise ship if you were a victim of a cruise ship accident, medical negligence on the ship, or an excursion accident.

If you have been injured on a cruise ship, you must file the claim at the cruise ship’s headquarters. Since your injury could have occurred in international waters, maritime laws may apply to the case. You can take the help of attorneys who focus on cruise ship accidents and have an in-depth understanding of maritime law to help you with your case. You typically have one year to file the claim.

The first thing you should do when you get hurt on a cruise is to report your injury and accident. You can go to the medical office and submit an accident report or visit the Purser’s desk. Your report will automatically trigger an investigation. If you feel you have been injured due to the cruise ship’s fault, report it immediately. Note the incident history and insist the company follows the standard procedures to investigate the issue. Then, contact a maritime personal injury attorney to help you with your claim.
