Carnival Triumph passengers seek damage compensation

The decision on whether passengers of Carnival’s Triumph will receive compensation will be announced soon.

Witness testimonies officially wrapped up on Wednesday, March 5, with U.S. District Judge Donald Graham saying he would issue a decision regarding damage payments at a later date.

The 893-foot Triumph departed from Galveston, Texas on Feb. 7, 2013. Part of the ship burned after a fire broke out in the engine room on February 10. The ship, which had been stuck in the Gulf of Mexico for five days, was finally towed to Mobile, Alabama on February 14.

Carnival management offered each shipwrecked passenger a $500 check, vouchers for future cruise trips, refunds for on-board expenses, and reimbursement for transportation and parking fees.

While cruises provide travelers with plenty of fun opportunities, people can become injured.  If you have been injured during your time on a cruise ship you could be eligible to pursue compensation. The attorneys of the Louis A. Vucci, P.A., specialize in representing people that have been injured on a cruise ship. Call (786) 375-0344 to speak with a member of our team.
