What Should You Do if You are Injured on a Cruise Ship?

For decades, our cruise ship injury lawyers have assisted passengers in collecting millions of dollars following serious injuries on cruise ships. Following an injury on a cruise ship, it is important that you obtain immediate medical attention in the ship’s infirmary to address your injuries and get proper medical attention. Some injuries may be more serious than you believe immediately after the incident and it’s important to get proper medical evaluation. You should fill out an accident report to document your injuries. When filling out the accident report, be certain to list all conditions that played a role in your accident and list the contact information for all witnesses. What unsafe condition caused your injury? Who witnessed the incident? Has this happened to other passengers before? Try to have other passengers in your party obtain photographs of the scene of the injury and document all unsafe conditions that played a role in your injury. When you return home, get proper medical evaluation from your family doctor or visit the emergency room if your condition needs immediate attention. Make certain that you get immediate attention and do not delay necessary medical treatment.
