Filing a Lawsuit

Facts and information about filing a lawsuit:

  • All personal injury cases depend on liabilities, damages done to boat, property or persons, and whether or not you can collect from the negligent party.
  • You can only file a lawsuit against another party if they are more at fault than you are for any injuries or damages caused.
  • Whether or not you are entitled to compensation, and how much, depends on the type of accident that caused the injury.
  • If you were injured onboard a cruise ship you may be entitled to damages as all cruise ships have a responsibility for their passengers and that they be free of unreasonable risk and danger.
  • If you were injured while working on a boat you are entitled for compensation under the Jones Act
