Cruise Ship Injuries

While most cruises are relaxing and fun, thousands of people sustain injuries on cruise ships every year. At James L. Arruebarrena, L.L.C., we help victims hold cruise lines accountable and pursue compensation for their injuries.

Our firm handles cases involving a full range of cruise ship injuries, including:

  • Slip and falls
  • Injuries from fires on the cruise ship
  • Pool and water slide accidents
  • Injuries sustained during on-shore excursions
  • Falling object accidents
  • Falls overboard
  • Medical malpractice or medical negligence
  • Assault caused by unsecured or unsafe premises
  • Injuries to workers

Pursuing compensation for a cruise ship injury is complicated. Maritime law, state law, federal regulations and the contract you have with the cruise line all affect when and how you can make a claim for damages. It is essential to work with a lawyer who understands every component of maritime injury claims.
