FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Dec. 30, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Law Offices of Jason Turchin shares advice for passengers injured on cruise lines, including Carnival, Royal Caribbean, Norwegian Cruise Line (NCL), and Disney Cruises. With a deep understanding of maritime law and a history of representing cruise injury victims, the firm offers these five tips to help passengers navigate the path to compensation.
“Injuries on cruise ships are more common than many realize, and pursuing compensation often requires knowledge of maritime and personal injury law,” states Jason Turchin, Esq.
Tip 1: Report the Injury Immediately
Inform the cruise ship staff about your cruise passenger injury as soon as possible. Officially documenting the incident on board is a helpful first step in your claim to prove it occurred.
Tip 2: Collect and Preserve Evidence
Take photos of the accident scene and your injuries. Gather contact information from any witnesses. This evidence can be invaluable in supporting your claim.
Tip 3: Seek Medical Attention Promptly
Prioritize your health and seek medical attention immediately, either on the ship or at the next port. Medical records can serve as important evidence in personal injury claims.
Tip 4: Be Aware of the Statute of Limitations
Cruise lines often have stringent statutes of limitations for filing injury claims. For example, many require claims to be filed within one year of the incident. Be mindful of these timeframes to ensure your claim is allowed.
Tip 5: Consult with a Specialized Attorney
Seek legal advice from an attorney experienced in cruise ship injury claims. Cruise lines like Carnival, Royal Caribbean, NCL, and Disney have specific procedures and legal teams to handle these cases, and so should you.
“Victims of cruise ship injuries often face a challenging battle against well-prepared corporate legal teams,” adds Turchin. “Our experience in this field can help level the playing field, giving our clients the representation they may need to pursue rightful compensation.”
Passengers injured on a Carnival, Royal Caribbean, NCL, Celebrity or Disney Cruise can reach out to the Law Offices of Jason Turchin for a consultation.
