Below are some of my settlements for accidents and injuries that were caused by a cruise line. All the settlements in this article are before deduction for attorney’s fees and expenses.
Most cases result in a lower recovery. It should not be assumed that your case will have as beneficial a result.
Toward the bottom of the page, I talk about settlements and verdicts (not mine) against cruise ships for injuries.
Lady tripped and fell over a threshold on a cruise ship. We claimed it was an optical illusion. She had surgery to fix her arm fracture. We were co-counsel on the case.

For a man in his forties who was injured while cruising on Carnival cruise ship Imagination. Our client, a resident of Baltimore, Maryland was sitting down on a tender on his way from the cruise ship to Grand Cayman.
The tender was apparently an independent contractor for Carnival. Fortunately, Florida law holds that the cruise line has a non-delegable duty to provide safety to passengers when the passenger is on a tender.
The rope connecting the tender to the “loading area” where the passengers were boarding the tender apparently snapped and the rope and a piece of metal flew and hit the gentleman. He reported his injury to cruise personnel immediately.
He visited the cruise ship infirmary later that day and their notes reveal that he had complaints of an injury and pain in his non-dominant shoulder. He received medical treatment for about 9 months and then had shoulder impingement surgery.
This cruise passenger was with family at the time of this incident. He had several witnesses. Carnival disputed the fact that the injury victim’s shoulder surgery was caused by the accident.
I sued in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Florida. Carnival’s ticket contract requires that legal action against the cruise line be brought in federal court in Miami, Florida.
You must sue within 1 year of the accident. Otherwise, your personal injury case will be permanently dismissed.
Check out someone else’s slip and fall case against Carnival Cruise Lines that was dismissed for failure to sue in time. If you choose to hire a lawyer, make sure to get one who is licensed in Miami’s federal court. We are.
For diabetic cruise ship passenger whose feet were severely burned when he walked on cruise ship outdoor surface which was unreasonably hot without proper warning. We were co-counsel.
