If you or a loved one was injured on a cruise ship, you could be entitled to financial compensation. To obtain it, you must prove the accident was the result of another person’s or entity’s negligence, which can be hard to prove on your own. When our Florida personal injury lawyer represents you, we take on the task of proving the cause and resulting costs of your accident.
At Ged Lawyers, one of our team members will review your case at no cost or obligation to you. Our Florida cruise ship accident lawyer will build the strongest possible case on your behalf. We will review all official reports related to your case and interview relevant witnesses. Reach out to us today for your free initial consultation.
Monetary Damages We Request for Florida Cruise Ship Accident Victims
An accident onboard a cruise ship can leave you with serious injuries that can have costly financial consequences. Our cruise ship accident attorney will help you pursue the following economic damages:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future lost income
- Loss of future earning potential
- Personal property damage or loss
According to Florida Statutes § 766.202, you can also recover the following non-economic damages:
- Pain and suffering and inconvenience
- Physical impairment and disfigurement
- Mental and emotional anguish
- Loss of enjoyment of life
We will also represent your family if you lost a loved one in a cruise ship accident. In Florida, wrongful death damages can include funeral, burial, and cremation costs. They can also include the loss of your loved one’s financial and household support and loss of consortium and companionship.
The Filing Deadline for Personal Injury Lawsuits in Florida
- The court will refuse to allow its filing at all
- It will be dismissed without ever being heard
In addition to these consequences, the cruise line’s insurance company may also refuse to negotiate with you. Either outcome could leave you with no legal recourse that compels the at-fault party to compensate you. Our law firm will clarify the filing deadline and its application to your case, including any factors that might cause it to fluctuate.
Let Ged Lawyers Deal With the Insurance Company and Your Personal Injury Claim
Dealing with the insurance adjuster after an accident can be a complex and stressful process. You will be asked a plethora of information-gathering questions.

When our lawyer handles your case, we will:
- Submit proof of the accident’s cause
- Provide proof of your monetary damages
- Handle verbal and written correspondence
Our team will locate and interview other cruise ship passengers and consult relevant expert witnesses. We also handle the negotiation process, including receiving offers, making counteroffers, and fighting for the best possible financial recovery for you and your family.
