Unfortunately, the more than 4,000 people that were on the Carnival Triumph are unaware that their Triumph cruise ship ticket contains language that could potentially limit their claim for any compensation

In the wake of the Carnival Triumph accident at sea, cruise ship attorneys Dell & Schaefer have launched a special website for those passengers seeking legal advice and counsel in the wake of the incident that resulted in terrible damages and financial loss for thousands of people. The new website is carnivaltriumphattorney.com and toll-free, 24-hour helpline is (888) 913-4033.
“Unfortunately, the more than 4,000 people that were on the Carnival Triumph are unaware that their Triumph cruise ship ticket contains language that could potentially limit their claim for any compensation,” stated attorney Gregory Dell.
The cruise ship attorneys at Dell & Schaefer have been helping cruise ship accident victims since 1979 and are very familiar with all of the tactics used by Carnival Cruise Lines to challenge damage claims.
“Numerous passengers on the Triumph have been advised of an offer of $500, a refund, and a free cruise. This offer is simply not acceptable and, frankly, an insult,” added Dell.
Passengers of the Carnival Triumph need to take immediate action in order to preserve any claim they may have against Carnival Cruise Lines. There is only a limited period of time to file any claims against Carnival. Passengers also must be aware that their cruise ship ticket requires any lawsuit filed against Carnival to take place in Miami, Florida. Dell & Schaefer has offices located within miles of Carnival’s Miami headquarters and has handled hundreds of cruise ship injury claims since 1979.
“Our lawyers deal with these cruise lines on a daily basis, and we know what it takes to get passengers the compensation they deserve,” Dell said. Passengers need to expect that Carnival is going to try to enforce the language in the Triumph cruise ship ticket in order to limit damage claims. The ticket states: "Carnival shall not be liable to the passenger for damages for emotional distress, mental suffering/anguish or psychological injury of any kind under any circumstances, except when such damages were caused by the negligence of Carnival and resulted from the same passenger sustaining actual physical injury, or having been at risk of actual physical injury, or when such damages are held to be intentionally inflicted by Carnival."
According to attorney Dennis Schaefer, "There are strong arguments to be made that Carnival not only caused emotional distress to all passengers, but they also intentionally placed every passenger at risk of actual physical injury."
Attorneys Dell & Schaefer has a team of lawyers and staff that are ready to assist passengers that are victims of the horrible events that took place at sea. The firm never charges any fees or costs unless they recover damages. The firm can be reached at any time by calling (888) 913-4033 or (954) 200-8933.
