Cruise Ship Accident
Cruise ships are required to exercise the highest level of care to make sure their passengers are safe and protected from harm. If they fail to exercise due care and passenger injury occurs, they may be financially responsible for the damages. If you or a loved one has sustained an injury while on board a cruise ship, you may be able to file a claim against numerous possible defendants including the cruise line or company chartering the cruise ship, the company that sold the cruise ticket, and/or any third party that caused the injury.
There are many different types of injuries that can occur on a cruise ship, which can include but are not limited to slip and falls, food poisoning, sexual and physical assault, pool and water slide accidents, injuries during recreational activities, injuries caused by crew error or negligence, and wrongful death.
They often small print on the passenger ticket controls many important aspects of filing a claim such as, where the claim must be filed and within what timeframe it must be presented. The ticket is actually a contract between the passenger and the cruise line.
