Carnival Cruise Ship: “A Floating Hell”

Carnival Cruise Ship: “A Floating Hell”

The first of what may be many maritime accident lawsuits against the Carnival Cruise Line has been filed in federal court in Miami. The woman filing the claim described the recent disaster on their Triumph cruise ship as, “A floating toilet, a floating petri dish, a floating hell.” Last month, an engine room fire on Carnival’s Triumph cruise ship caused passengers and crew members to be stranded at sea for five days. They endured harsh conditions, and many people were forced to sleep amidst sewage.

Carnival has offered the passengers of the cruise ship $500 in compensation, an amount that many passengers find laughably inadequate. However, passengers may face an uphill battle when seeking compensation in court.

Victims generally need to demonstrate that they have suffered a financial loss to achieve a successful outcome in a personal injury claim. Very few passengers actually suffered an injury requiring medical attention during this incident.

The Orlando maritime accident lawyers at Colling Gilbert Wright are currently evaluating claims associated with the Carnival Triumph accident. If you have a valid case, we will aggressively pursue compensation for your damages in court.

Our attorneys understand how difficult maritime accident cases can be. Maritime law makes recovering compensation difficult, and most cruise ship lines incorporate language into the ticket contracts that severely limits their liability. You will need the help of an aggressive attorney to make sure your rights are protected.
