Royal Caribbean Cruise Ship Accident Lawyer

Based in Miami, Florida, Royal Caribbean Cruises is the world’s second largest international cruise company. With 21 ships, along with a host of related companies, the company docks at 300 ports, everywhere from the Caribbean to the Mediterranean and even the Arctic. The company’s cruises are particularly popular for their wide range of amenities, often including casinos, Broadway shows, nightclubs, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, spas and more. All of this means that chances are your next cruise will be aboard a Royal Caribbean ship.

Different Types of Royal Caribbean Injuries

This is the good news. The bad news is that, as a large cruise company, they're also tend to be a significant number of accidents aboard their ships. For example, not so long ago a nine-year old boy was injured while under the supervision of the ship’s provided child care service. During an organized game he suffered a traumatic brain injury that required emergency service and extended hospitalization in the Bahamas.

Since this injury occurred on the ship while the passenger was under the supervision of the ship’s staff, Royal Caribbean can be held liable for the boy’s injuries. However, in this case and in similar personal injury incidents, the cruise line will require that the lawsuit be filed where the cruise ship is registered. As Royal Caribbean is a Miami-based company, lawsuits have to be filed in Florida. If you are unsure, simply take a look at your passenger contract (found on your ticket). Typically the cruise ship will state where any potential lawsuits must be filed. More so, the contract will also likely state that you must file your personal injury claim against Royal Caribbean within one year of the injury.

To ensure that you get the compensation you deserve for your personal injuries while aboard a Royal Caribbean cruise, it is essential – if not mandatory – that you hire the services of a Florida licensed attorney. More so, because of the unique nature of cruise ship accidents, it is advised that you seek the advice of an attorney experienced in cruise ship accident injuries.
