Miami cruise ship injury lawyer David H. Charlip releases a new article ( explaining who is liable for injuries on cruise ships. The lawyer mentions that cruising is a great way to spend a family vacation. However, due to the size of the vessel and the number of people inside, a cruise ship can also pose a lot of risks for injuries.

“Of course, when you think about and plan your vacation, the last thing on your mind is the thought of being injured or sick, however, cruise vacations pack many hidden risks. Such injuries range from a trip or slip and falls, to assaults, tender injuries, food poisoning, excursion injuries, Norovirus, medical malpractice, and even wrongful death,” says the Miami cruise ship injury lawyer.

The lawyer explains that some cruise ships are so huge that they are able to carry 3,000 passengers. This huge number of people can sometimes prove to be challenging for the staff to keep an eye on, and this is where negligence can come in. If a person suffers from an injury on a cruise ship, they may be able to collect compensation for their injuries.

Attorney David H. Charlip adds that if an individual suffers an injury or illness while on a cruise, there are important conditions that can limit their right to file a claim. These limitations often restrict the location of where any such lawsuit may be filed as well as the time within which the claim may be filed.

In the article, the lawyer says that cruise ship companies usually make it hard for a victim to file an injury claim. The passenger has 180 days to notify the cruise line of any claim after an accident. The passenger also needs to file suit within one year. It is also crucial for a victim to see a doctor right away after disembarking from the ship to see the extent of their injuries.

According to attorney Charlip, “It is crucial to begin documenting and conserving evidence as soon as possible. The cruise line won't provide any evidence or protect it. Photographs are not required by cruise lines. You are required to either take photos or have someone else take digital images of the scene. If possible, take photos of the accident scene and your injuries. All witnesses, including cruise ship personnel and passengers, should be identified.”

Lastly, the personal injury attorney emphasizes the importance of having a skilled lawyer when it comes to matters such as filing an injury claim. An experienced personal injury lawyer may be able to help the victim receive the compensation they deserve.
