Who Is Entitled to Financial Compensation for Personal Injury in a Cruise Ship Accident?

If the injured party can prove that the cruise line or crew failed to exercise reasonable care, the injured party may be entitled to compensation. Compensation depends on the cause of the incident, prerequisites stated on the ticket or in the contract with the cruise line and the severity of injuries.

If the injured party can prove that the cruise line or crew failed to exercise care that a reasonable party would have (or that in the circumstances the law requires for the protection of other persons or the interests of other persons) the injured party may be entitled to compensation. Each case is singular in terms of the type of physical and emotional trauma and incidental financial losses suffered. Moreover, entitlement for compensation depends on:

  • The cause of the incident;
  • Prerequisites stated on the ticket or in the contract with the cruise line;
  • The severity of injuries suffered.

If an injured party has suffered due to negligent behavior, he has the right to be compensated for physical or emotional injury and harm to his property and/or financial status. If you have been the victim of a cruise accident, contact Mr. Cleary and find out about your chances for a valid claim.
