Your cruise ticket will have specific information regarding the time limits for bringing a claim and where you must file your suit. If you have been injured on a cruise ship, it is important you speak with an attorney as soon as possible so you do not miss the deadline to file your claim.

I have helped clients secure damages for their pain and suffering, lost wages and medical expenses when they have been injured in a cruise ship accident. I will work to bring a claim against the ship owner.

Injured Cruise Ship Crewmembers and Employees

If you are a crewmember or employee who was injured in a cruise accident, you may have a claim against your employer under the Jones Act. The Jones Act can apply to crewmembers and employees whose work on the vessel contributes to the navigation or the purpose of the mission. Under the act, these employees are known as seamen, and are able to recover greater amounts of compensation for their injuries than workers' compensation could provide.

If you have been injured on Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Princess, Celebrity, Norwegian or Holland American cruise lines, contact a California lawyer to discuss your claim.
