There are special rules for filing cruise ship injury lawsuits.  The deadlines are shorter than other personal injury cases and the cases must be filed in the court of the departure city.  To sue a cruise ship company, you should contact a lawyer immediately upon your return back home.

There is no average cruise ship settlement.  Rather, compensation payouts are based upon the unique facts of each case.  Settlements include payouts for physical pain and suffering, psychological distress, and disabilities caused by the incident.  Other damages include payment of lost income and medical expenses.  You can get a settlement that includes all types of damages.

You still may be able to sue if you signed a liability waiver.  It really depends on the language in the waiver and the city or country where it was signed.  Some courts consider signed waivers a complete defense to a case.  Other places still allow you to sue for your injuries despite signing a waiver form.
