Norwegian Cruise Ship Accidents

When packing your bags and heading out on a Norwegian Cruise Ship vacation, the last thing you probably think of is what to do if you or a family member is injured. Unfortunately, accidents do happen. Just a quick scan of the recent headlines or a Google search will bring up pages of accidents happening aboard a cruise ship – including Norwegian Cruise Ships. Everything from slip and falls to assaults, drowning and falling overboard can happen while on a Norwegian Cruises vacation.

When injured on a cruise ship, you do have the right to be compensated for your injuries. The basis for this right falls under the governance of personal injury law – like what governs your right to receive compensation following a car accident. However, cruises are unique and thus cruise ship accident claims tend to be particularly complex.

Types of Norwegian Cruise Line Accidents & Injuries

For starters, where can you file you law suit? Norwegian Cruise Lines are headquartered in Miami-Dade county, meaning you will likely have to file your legal claim there. To be sure, check the fine print on your ticket, chances are it will clearly state where all claims of liability must be filed. If in Miami, then you will need to consult with a Florida cruise ship accident attorney.

While you are looking at that fine print, you may also notice a time limit on when you can file your claim. Most cruise companies, Norwegian cruises included, require all claims to be filed within one year of the accident date. If you file even one day later, according to the agreement you ‘signed’ by purchasing your ticket, you no longer have a right to sue.

On top of this, there’s the issue of who is liable for your injuries. Sure, you may have been on a Norwegian Cruise, but the cruise itself involves the services of many companies: the ship owner, the operating company, the travel agency, etc.

Sound complicated? Instead of getting lost in the legal maze of cruise ship accident claims, seek the advice of an experienced cruise ship accident attorney.
