Injuries On Cruise Ships
Cruise ship owners have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their passengers. If they fail in that duty and someone is injured, they need to be held accountable for the harm someone suffered as the result of their lack of care.
Cruise ship passengers face a variety of risks ranging from the mundane such as slip-and-fall accidents to the shock of assaults by crew members. The owners of a cruise ship may be responsible for your injuries if the accident was caused by a condition that was known about or which they should have known about.
Act Now To Preserve Your Right To Compensation
No matter what type of accident you were injured in, it is always wise to begin pursuing compensation right away. Evidence becomes much harder to locate as time goes on. Further, there may be a statute of limitations that would prevent you from bringing a claim for damages. We can review your case and determine how best to start building your case.
