Accidents and Injuries on a Cruise Ship

Traveling on a cruise ship is supposed to be a fun and relaxing experience, but some passengers find that an accident or purposeful act derails their plans for a fun vacation. Likewise, crew members and others working on a cruise ship may find themselves injured. Being at sea and having limited access to immediate medical care while on a cruise ship can make injuries even more serious than under normal circumstances.

It can be exhausting and expensive to deal with the aftermath of an injury sustained on a cruise ship. This is why it is important for accident victims to preserve their rights to recover damages for the injury and suffering they sustained as a result of someone else’s negligence or intentional acts on a cruise ship.

Common Injuries on a Cruise Ship

Unfortunately, traveling at sea in close proximity to many other passengers and crew members can create the potential for injuries. There are many things that can go wrong on a ship, but these are some of the typical injuries that passengers or crew members on a cruise ship might sustain:

  • Slip and fall or trip and fall
  • Falling overboard
  • Medical malpractice
  • Excursion accidents
  • Assault
  • Pool or waterslide accidents
  • Falling objects
  • Infections
  • Docking accidents

Seeking Treatment for an Injury at Sea

Cruise ships offer medical assistance to those who sustain injuries while traveling on the ship. You may need immediate assistance and not have other options for medical care. Failing to provide adequate medical assistance or further injuring a person in need of medical care are common sources of claims against cruise ships.

Passengers of cruise ships are entitled to compensation for the cost of medical care to treat their injuries at sea as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongful act. Filing a claim can help you recuperate the cost of medical care.

Common Causes of Injuries on a Cruise Ship

The operator of a cruise ship may not fulfill its duty to keep passengers safe onboard. Investigating the cause of an injury on a ship is part of holding the responsible party accountable for the unsafe conditions. Some of the most common causes of injuries on a ship include:

  • Improper ship maintenance
  • Faulty equipment
  • Poorly-trained crew
  • Unsafe conditions
  • Lack of security
  • Lack of safety equipment
  • Crashes or navigational errors
  • Fire
  • Contaminated food

Recovering After a Serious Injury on a Ship

The complexities of navigating a lawsuit for injuries suffered on a cruise ship mean that retaining a cruise ship injury lawyer is in your best interest. Injury lawsuits involving cruise ships are extremely complicated.

This is especially true for cases involving serious and life-threatening injuries on a ship. The guidance of an injury lawyer who is experienced in advocating for victims of ship injuries can make the difference in securing compensation to provide for your recovery.

Filing a Claim Against a Cruise Ship for Your Injuries

Depending on the circumstances of the injury you suffered, you may be able to recover against the cruise ship for your injury.

The cruise ship may be the most likely liable party to pay after an injury lawsuit.

This is an important consideration because the cruise ship may be the only entity involved in the incident that has sufficient resources to cover the amount of damages that you are entitled to.

It can be difficult to prove liability against a major cruise ship company.

There are certain conditions that you must be able to prove to hold a cruise ship liable for the injuries that you sustain on board. For example, if you were injured in an accident on a ship where you tripped over a hazard or slipped and fell, the cruise ship may have been responsible for preventing or fixing the unsafe condition before you were injured.

An expert, experienced attorney can likely help you…

One of the resources that a maritime injury attorney can provide in proving your claim against a cruise ship is the use of experts or investigators to demonstrate the unsafe conditions that you encountered on the ship.
