What are my rights if I'm injured while on a cruise?
If you have been injured on a cruise ship, you have important legal rights. Common injuries on cruise ships include food poisoning, assault by crew members or other passengers, sexual battery, slip/trip and falls and other personal injuries. All cruise ship lines have a responsibility to make sure that the ship is free of unreasonalbe risk of danger or other hazardous conditions that could cause injury to its passengers. When cruise ship accidents occur because of poor maintenance, incompetent staff members, inadequate safety equipment, inadequate emergency precautions and/or improperly trained employees, cruise ship owners can be held legally responsible for negligence. Victims of cruise ship accidents may be entitled to damages for pain and suffering, medical bills and lost wages.
