If you have been injured on a cruise ship, check your cruise ship ticket for important information. This ticket acts like a contract between you and the cruise line. The cruise ticket may require you to pursue your injury claim in a specific location, such as Miami or Los Angeles. It will also set a time limit for bringing a cruise ship injury lawsuit and inform you of how long you have to report your injury to the cruise line. If you do not follow the rules on the ticket, you can lose your right to pursue a cruise ship injury lawsuit.
