A cruise ship injury can be difficult to navigate alone.

Who Is Liable for a Port Canaveral Accident?

Whether you are an injured passenger or injured crew member, you may be due compensation from the liable party in your Port Canaveral accident. However, you may be unsure who is liable for your claim. If you have suffered severe injuries in maritime accidents or cruise accidents, the at-fault party for such accidents maybe cruise lines, such as the following:

Keep in mind that the cruise industry is extremely profitable, which means these companies have the money to vigorously defend against claims from injured passengers and injured crew members. Likewise, other parties, such as the port authority may be responsible for your claim. Reach out to our law offices to learn more about what you can do to get compensated and get your medical expenses, among other losses, covered.

Compensation Following an Accident on a Cruise Line

When you have suffered serious injuries on a cruise ship, such as traumatic brain injuries, you may be due full compensation for your damages. Personal injury laws state that, when you are injured by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for the damages you have suffered, both economic and non-economic.

Economic damages should cover all financial losses you have suffered because of your injuries. That includes seeking medical care, lost wages, property damage, and more. Non-economic damages cover any mental and emotional suffering you have experienced because of a cruise ship or port accident. These damages are intangible, so reach out for our port accident and maritime attorneys for aid.
