Where do I Have to File a Claim Against Carnival Cruise Line?

Though Carnival’s ships have homeports throughout the United States, inserted in each Carnival cruise ticket contract is a venue selection provision requiring a personal injury lawsuit to be filed in Federal court located in Miami, Florida. For example, if a passenger is from Texas and is injured on a Mexican Rivera cruise which left from and returned to San Diego, that passenger must bring a lawsuit in Miami even though the cruise ship never traveled to Florida. With offices located in Miami, our Carnival cruise line accident lawyers are positioned to help our clients with a lawsuit against Carnival.

Why Should I Retain an Attorney to Represent Me Against Carnival Cruise Lines?

We recommend to anyone who was injured on a Carnival cruise to first contact a qualified attorney before trying to negotiate a claim alone. It is important to understand that a lawsuit must be filed against Carnival within one year of the accident. The injured passenger is also required to provide the cruise line with written notice of potential claim within six months of the accident. Carnival has a sophisticated claims department and if all ticket requirements are not followed, your claim will likely be dismissed and you will collect nothing in your lawsuit.

As soon as a person becomes our client, the firm’s Carnival Cruise Line accident attorneys provide the requisite written notice and demand the cruise line to preserve key evidence in the case. We next start investigating the case to assist with the prosecution of the claim. We work closely with our clients to understand how the accident happened and the impact of the injuries to our client. This enables us to better relate our client’s story to the judge and jury.
