SHOULD I TRY TO SETTLE MY CRUISE INJURY CLAIM WITH THE CRUISE LINE BEFORE BRINGING IN A CRUISE LAW ATTORNEY?

Typically not, because the deck is stacked against you. To get paid anything you have to abide by the contract you entered with the cruise line when you purchased your ticket from them and any failure to rigorously follow the terms of that contract can lead to your getting nothing. We know of attorneys who do not regularly practice cruise ship injury law who themselves were unable to follow the requirements of their injured client’s cruise contracts and ended up getting nothing for their clients.

We are also aware of many instances where the cruise lines appear to act towards their injured passengers as though settlement is possible, all the while knowing that the clock is ticking on the injured cruise ship passenger’s ability to file a cruise injury lawsuit in time to beat the too short statutes of limitations imposed on passengers by the cruise lines themselves.

Though we are aware of cruise lines offering a free cruise to individuals injured on one of their cruise vessels, we are not aware of a single instance where a cruise line has settled with a party not represented by an attorney for anything we consider close to what that party was entitled to for their cruise ship injury.

Cruise ship litigation is often difficult and time consuming, but if you want full and fair compensation for the injury you sustained on your cruise voyage, we strongly urge you to retain experienced cruise ship injury counsel.
