Cruise ships: they’re supposed to be relaxing, enjoyable getaways, right? While booking some time onboard a cruise ship might sound like an excellent vacation, there’s actually a surprising degree of risk involved. Every year, people fall ill or are injured while vacationing on a cruise line, whether it’s widespread breakouts of a virus that wasn’t properly screened for or injury stemming from the negligence or carelessness of the crew. Don’t let this happen to you – if you’re injured while vacationing on a cruise line, you’ll need the help of an experienced maritime lawyer who’s willing to fight for you.
Am I Protected By The Law If I Am Injured On A Cruise Ship?
Injuries on a cruise ship are covered by a special set of laws regarding when and where lawsuits against a cruise ship company can be brought, among other factors. It’s a complicated area of law that oftentimes seems stacked in favor of the big cruise ship companies. You’re not completely powerless, however: you just need a lawyer who knows the law, and knows how to fight back. That’s where O’Bryan Law comes in.
What Are Some Of The More Common Cruise Ship Injuries?
Injuries can happen when a cruise line fails to have sufficient safety guidelines in place or when those guidelines are ignored or disregarded by the crew. Common injuries can include:
- Slip and falls
- Food poisoning
- Sexual assault
- Faulty or broken equipment
And many more. The risks you take onboard a cruise ship can be different from other risks you might even encounter working in the maritime industry, and if you fall victim to the carelessness or maliciousness of a cruise ship crew, you need to fight for your rights.
