Common Cruise Ship Injuries
Cruise ship injuries can range from minor accidents to severe incidents. Common cases we handle include slip and fall accidents, food poisoning, general negligence, excursion injuries, swimming pool accidents, recreational activity injuries, and medical negligence onboard.
Navigating Your Claim
Filing a claim for an injury on a cruise ship involves unique challenges:
- Understanding the Fine Print: Cruise tickets often contain clauses that impact your rights to file a lawsuit, including stipulations on where and when you can file a claim.
- Statute of Limitations: Cruise injury claims often have a shorter statute of limitations. Prompt legal action is essential. Many cruise lines require a cruise lawsuit to be filed within one year of the incident.
- Jurisdictional Issues: Determining which court has jurisdiction over your case can be complex, depending on where the injury occurred and the cruise line’s policies.

We are committed to helping you receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We can handle every aspect of your claim, from investigating the incident to negotiating with cruise line and litigating in court if necessary.

When you suffer an injury on a cruise, the impact can be both physically and emotionally devastating, as well as financially burdensome. At The Law Offices of Jason Turchin, our Florida Cruise Lawyers are dedicated to helping you recover the full range of damages to which you are entitled. These damages can include:
- Medical Expenses: Compensation for medical treatment you received due to your injury, including hospitalization, surgery, medication, rehabilitation, and any future medical care related to the injury.
- Lost Wages and Loss of Earning Capacity: If your injury has resulted in you being unable to work, you may be entitled to compensation for lost wages. This also includes loss of future earning capacity if your injury affects your ability to work in the long term.
- Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical pain and emotional distress you have endured because of your injury. This includes the impact on your quality of life and any psychological trauma.
- Punitive Damages: In some cases, if the cruise line’s negligence was particularly egregious, you may be entitled to punitive damages, which are intended to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar negligent behavior in the future.
Common Cruise Passenger Injury Claims
Cruise passenger injury claims can arise from a variety of incidents. Some of the most common claims we handle include:
- Slip and Fall Accidents: One of the most common types of accidents on cruise ships, these can occur due to wet decks, poorly maintained areas, or obstacles in walkways.
- Food Poisoning: Illnesses caused by contaminated or improperly prepared food served on the ship.
- Swimming Pool and Recreational Activity Accidents: Injuries occurring in or around swimming pools, or during onboard recreational activities.
- Medical Negligence: Claims against the cruise line for inadequate medical care provided onboard, or for failing to adequately address medical emergencies.
