HAVE YOU BEEN INJURED ON A CRUISE SHIP – YOU MAY NEED AN ATTORNEY
When a long awaited vacation on a luxury cruise ship suddenly goes wrong, and you experience an injury, contact the experienced attorneys at Webb & Ord to help you recover emotionally, physically and financially. Let us determine whether the Cruise Liner company should be held culpable for your loss, pain, suffering and inconvenience.
If the injury was case by an act of omission of the Coast Guard or Navy, it may be a Federal Tort Claims Act matter that will need to proceed through the Federal Courts.
COMMON CRUISE SHIP INJURIES
Slip and fall accidents are quite common on a ship because of the inherent factors of being aboard a moving vessel in the high seas.
- Rogue waves
- collisions can all be deadly to unsuspecting passengers.
The atmosphere on a party ship leads to
- spilled drinks,
- hazards to trip on
- poolside slips
- unfamiliar stairs on a moving ship can all lead to serious injuries.
Accidents at the Port of Call often leads right back to the culpability of the cruise liner.
You may be injured, beaten, robbed or worse at an on-shore activity or locale that is recommended or was purchased through the cruise line excursion. Not all bad things that happen are the fault of the cruise line but if there is a presumed sanctioning of the activities presented to their passengers, our attorneys have the professional expertise required to determine if the cruise line should be held liable.
Epidemic illness or infections upon the ship are all over the news and media outlets. The very nature of a confined space with hoards of people, stores of food, waste systems, public pools (hot and cold) is a rampant infection waiting to happen. The cruise line has a responsibility to have enough control over the ship environment to avoid all such contamination. Its not easy and if negligence is a factor, our attorneys at Webb & Ord have the tenacity to ferret it out. It is the cruise liner’s duty to provide their customers with a healthy environment that is not going to cause illnesses.
