Cruise Ship Accidents
Cruise ship accidents are not uncommon. There are around thirteen million Americans that take cruises each year. Cruise lines are not only some of the most profitable industries in the world, but are also one of the most unregulated and untaxed businesses. However, cruise lines can be held accountable in United States courts under general and maritime law for their negligent maintenance of the cruise line—including slip and falls; medical malpractice; negligent event planning and monitoring of shore excursions; and for crew sexually assaulting passengers.
The Law Offices of Jerrod Paul has the experience to help you in your case against a cruise line that deviated from providing its patrons a reasonable standard of care. Cruise lines have a duty to make their premises safe, without dangerous conditions that can lead to serious injury while aboard the line. When a cruise line injury occurs due to poor maintenance, incompetent staff, lack of security, poor sanitation, or inadequate emergency procedures, the cruise ship owners can be held responsible.
