Cruise Ship Injury
Every year, millions of people vacation on cruise ships. They depart from the shores of the United States and journey into international waters around the world. While cruises remain one of the most popular vacation venues all year long, they are not always the safest. From slip and fall accidents on wet decks to improper medical care or misdiagnoses by a cruise ship’s medical staff, cruise ship goers can fall victim to injury. Often, the cruise ship company acts negligently and is responsible for these injuries. Injured passengers may be entitled to compensation
Here are examples of injuries that are often the result of a cruise ship operator’s negligence:
- Slip & Fall
- Improper medical care
- Misdiagnoses by the medical staff
- Injuries sustained onshore during ports of call
- Missing Persons
- Wrongful Death
- Food Poisoning
These injuries not only ruin vacations, but often leave a victim with a long and burdensome path to recovery, which may include time away from work and lost wages, medical expenses and general pain and suffering.
