I am really confused because from what I understand I do have to become a citizen first to fix my husband papers but my dad is also a resident and he fixed me, my mom, my 2 sisters, and my 2 brothers papers.

Certainly they do though if you were injured because of another person you might have a US claim. If its on a cruise that's a whole different set of jurisprudence and I'd start by getting a free consult from a member of the Texas Trial Lawyers Assn.
