Port Canaveral (Cape Canaveral) Cruise Ship Accidents

If you are a Port Canaveral cruise ship passenger who has experienced in injury while on a cruise ship vacation, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. However, cruise ship accident claims generally involve complex legal matters, meaning it is well advised that you consult the advice of an experienced cruise ship accident attorney.

Following a cruise ship accident, you should first take the following steps:

  • Have somebody take photos of the dangerous condition that caused your accident.
  • Immediately report the accident or assault to ship officials, such as a security officer. Be sure the security officer writes a written report of the incident. Always get a copy of the accident report.
  • Get the names of anyone who may have seen your accident, they could potentially serve as witnesses in your claim. Have these potential witnesses write down what they saw. Be sure to get the contact information (email, phone, and mailing address) of all potential witnesses.
  • Seek immediate medical help, either in the ship infirmary or on land.
  • Obtain the names of any personnel who helped you, including medical help and doctors, and get copies of any related documentation.
  • Take as many photos of the accident scene before the area is cleaned up or the dangerous condition remedied.
  • Send written notice of your intent to file a claim against the cruise ship, in accordance with the statute of limitations stated on your cruise ship ticket.
  • Contact a Port Canaveral cruise ship accident attorney.

This last point is particularly important as cruise ship accident claims are anything but your average personal injury case. For example, because most cruise ship accidents occur on water, maritime law may apply. In addition, you will face issues on time limitations, jurisdiction and multiple defendants.
