Most Important Factors in Determining the Value of Your Cruise Ship Accident or Injury Claim:

1. The type severity or magnitude of the harms suffered: The most significant factors in determining the overall potential value of an injury lawsuit against a cruise ship operator is the level of the harm suffered. This is evidence via medical records showing the diagnosing of the injury, requirement for treatment and rehabilitation, and need for future medical care. Some of the most common harms and accidents which can take place onboard a cruise ship include 2. Percent of Fault Attributed to the Defendants and Plaintiff: Under the notion of contributory negligence the at fault party only has responsibility for the percentage of fault apportioned to his negligence and or wrongful actions. For example in a case involving an inebriated person who falls on stairs that had debris on them the judge placed the injured party 40% at fault and the Cruise ship operator at 60% at fault for failure to clean up debris on the stairs. If the total monetary evaluation of the harm suffered is place at $100,000, then victims can only receive a maximum of $60,000 (or %60) form the cruise ship operator. 3. Calculation of Pain and Suffering: Under the Jones Acts which covers maritime injuries and accidents victims have the right to seek monetary compensation for the physical pain and the mental trauma they have suffered. This calculation can be made on a Per Diem basis meaning that a judge or jury will place a value on the daily pain and suffering incurred. 4. Calculation of Lost Wages and Loss of Future Earning Capacity: Victims of personal injury are entitled to recuperation for loss of wages which can be calculated via pay stubs. Vocational experts are often used to place a monetary amount on the loss of future income or earning capacity due to a long term injury or permanent disability.
