Our Cruise Ship Law Firm Featured on Covering the Carnival Triumph Fiasco

February 21, 2013

Following the Carnival Triumph fire, which left over 3,000 passengers and more than 1,000 crewmembers stranded at sea without any power and in horrendous, unsanitary conditions, many are left wondering if it is possible to sue the cruise line.

The answer is YES.

Our maritime lawyer and an active trial attorney Jason R. Margulies was recently interviewed by CNN and discussed the implications of the situation Triumph passengers endured while at sea regarding their ability to file a claim against the line.

In a story titled After a bad cruise, can you cruise into court? Attorney Margulies explained that “negligent infliction of emotional distress would be the main justification for a suit,” along with the unsanitary conditions passengers were forced to endure, including sewage and waste leaks throughout the vessel, which Attorney Margulies said created a “risk of health problems.”

“All of this is justification for going to court,” he added.

The interview shows passengers that they don’t have to sit around and accept what they went through. Everyone who was onboard the Triumph are entitled to protect their rights and fight for the compensation they deserve for the conditions they were made to endure.
