Should I accept a settlement offer from the cruise line?
When someone is injured on a cruise ship, the cruise line will sometimes offer a discount on a future cruise or some small amount of money to try to settle your claim to avoid litigation. Do not accept a settlement offer from a cruise ship, or anyone, before speaking with an attorney about your claim. If you settle your claim with the cruise line, and then find out later that the value of your case is much larger than what you accepted (for example, your medical bills rise become higher than you expected), you are not allowed to go back and try to sue to cruise line for more money. With over 30 years experience, our Florida maritime lawyers at Munch and Munch, P.A. will know how and when to respond to any communication from the cruise line, and also how to determine the actual value of your potential claim.
