Maritime Attorney Ready To Pursue Your Cruise Ship Passenger Injury Claim

In many cases, the injury is caused by the negligence of the crew members or the cruise line. Cruise passengers may suffer assault or sexual battery, become seriously ill while aboard a ship from norovirus, injured by a slip on an unreasonably slippery deck that the management knew or should have known about, or hurt on a shore excursion booked through the vessel. These types of situations entitle you to seek damages from whoever's negligence caused or contributed to the injury.

A cruise passenger has even on occasion fell overboard, or from one part of the vessel to another. These circumstances may lead to the death of the cruise ship passenger in which case, a wrongful death lawsuit may be filed by the family of the deceased passenger.
