If I Am Injured on a Cruise Ship, What Type of Damages Can I Claim?
If you're injured on a cruise ship you can claim both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages would be those things like your medical expenses whether it's out-of-pocket payments, co-payments for insurance, lost wages if you've been out of work. Anything that you've had to pay out-of-pocket for.
