We have been successfully handling cruise ship injury accidents for clients against all of the cruise lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian, Holland America, Princess, Disney, MSC, Virgin, Celebrity, and many others.

Types of cases we regularly see:

#1. Falldowns. This includes slip and falls, trip and falls, and also knock-downs by crew and other passengers.

#2. Injuries in the cabins. This also can include fall downs. Failure of equipment in the room. (e.g., chair breaking, bunk bed failure, etc.)

#3. Gangway falldowns. This heavily trafficked area regularly produces injuries.

#4. Tender boat injuries. The small boats that take passengers to port and back regularly result in injuries, and mostly occur when passengers are transferring between the cruise ship and the smaller vessel—especially in rough weather.

#5. Clients hurt by the negligence of other passengers. We pursue both the cruise line if they are at fault, and the passenger if they are at fault in causing you injury.

#6. Employee negligence. Knocking over passengers, spilling or dropping things on passengers.

#7. Assaults by passengers against passengers or by crew against other passengers.

These are just some of the types of cases we have successfully handled for our deserving clients against the cruise lines.
