Damages Recoverable in a Florida Princess Cruises Ship Injury Case
When our Florida cruise ship injury lawyers represent a client hurt on a Princess cruise, we aim to develop a compelling case to show the cruise ship company (or another at-fault party) acted negligently. We investigate the incident and document the damages the client incurred. This allows us to seek fair compensation based on their expenses and losses.
Potential damages in a cruise ship accident case include:
- Pain and suffering and other non-economic damages
- Medical bills, current and future
- Lost income from time missed at work
- Diminished earning capacity for lasting injuries
- Other miscellaneous expenses
Our legal team can also assist with wrongful death cases. If your loved one died on a Princess cruise lines vacation, the cruise line may be liable.

What About the Princess Cruises Passenger Waiver?
Like most major cruise lines, Princess Cruises requires passengers to agree to a waiver. In addition to rules related to your behavior and what could happen if the schedule changes on the trip, this contract outlines what happens if you suffer emotional harm, bodily injury, illness, or death during your vacation.
This includes details about the legal process, timeline, and where you must file lawsuits against the cruise line. According to the Princess Cruises passage contract:
- You must notify the cruise company of your injury in writing within six months.
- You must file a lawsuit within one year.
- The company must receive service of the lawsuit within 90 days of filing.
- Some cases require arbitration.
Your Florida Princess cruise injury lawyer can assess your case and determine how these rules will affect your case. We may need to pursue compensation or navigate a specific process to pursue compensation based on the rules in your passage contract.

Negligence and Liability in a Princess Cruises Injury Accident
Many injured passengers assume they cannot sue or otherwise hold the cruise line legally responsible for their injuries because of their passage contract. This is generally untrue. When the cruise line or its employees act carelessly or recklessly and cause an incident, the company may still be responsible.
Premises liability accidents can occur almost anywhere on a cruise ship, during onshore excursions, and at the port. Our cruise ship accident attorneys will determine who is liable. For injuries that occur on a cruise, the carrier is likely responsible for anything that happens on the boat. Potential accidents could include:
- Slips on wet decks
- Trips over fall hazards
- Equipment accidents
- Stair falls
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Swimming pool accidents
- Burns or other injuries in restaurants and food courts
- Fall injuries in food courts or retail stores
- Injuries from unsecured items
- Accidents in your room
Cruise ship falls are common. Workers have a duty of care to assess decks and other walkways to ensure they remain dry and free from slip and fall hazards. If they fail to do so, injuries could occur. Princess Cruises has a responsibility to prevent falls and injuries when possible.

How Long Do I Have to Sue Based on My Princess Cruises Accident Injuries?
Florida’s statute of limitations sets a deadline for filing personal injury cases at two years from the injury, per HB 837 / SB236. However, as previously mentioned, the Princes Cruises passenger contract only allows cruise injury victims to file lawsuits within one year of the accident.
Even if your cruise sailed from Florida, you may also be required to file your lawsuit in a different jurisdiction based on this contract. Our Florida Princess cruise ship attorneys can help you determine where you must file your lawsuit and exactly how long you have to do so.
We encourage you to contact us as soon as possible after your cruise injury to ensure your Florida Princess Cruises accident lawyer can meet all applicable deadlines in your case.
