Cruise Ship Accidents
The majority of cruise ships leave from ports in Florida. Many of the cruise ships require guests to be bound and file all lawsuits in other states. The cruise lines may argue that your injury was foreseeable. However, you should speak with our attorneys if you were injured on any cruise ship.
As a multi-billion dollar industry, cruise lines can easily afford to hire very aggressive maritime lawyers. This is why you need strong attorneys on your side as well.
For families who are on vacation, one of the last things they want to consider is hiring a cruise ship accident attorney. But an attorney can diligently represent them in seeking compensation for their injuries. It is important that these corporate entities be held accountable. Their negligence may have created dangerous environments which caused your injuries.
Should you be injured on a cruise ship, remember the cruise line may be responsible if in fact they were negligent in any way. There are several types of accidents that happen on cruise ships, but many involve a slip or trip and fall. A few examples are:
- Slipping and falling on decks
- Threshold trips
- Staircase falls
Assaults or other acts such as battery may fall under the category of intentional torts and under the umbrella of negligence. The cruise line may be held liable.
