Cruise-Accident Law Firm Navigates The Complexities Of Maritime Law To Help Victims

Every year, millions of people come to Florida ports to board cruise ships for exciting and beautiful vacation destinations. However, many passengers find that their dream vacations turn into nightmares as they suffer injury or sickness from unforeseen cruise-line accidents. Many times, these are the direct result of negligent behavior on the part of the cruise line.

Cruise-ship injury lawsuits are governed by federal and state law, as well as maritime law. The problem is that most cruise ship tickets contain a clause on the back that regulates where the lawsuit must take place. Fortunately, many times, they choose either Miami or Fort Lauderdale, which means we can help.

Cruise lines are obligated to operate their vessels according to safety guidelines and to provide a safe environment for both their crew and passengers. They are required to take certain reasonable measures to prevent dangerous or unsafe conditions and to prevent accidents from happening that might cause injury or even loss of life.

When injury or wrongful death occurs, the cruise line can and should be held accountable, particularly when it happens as a direct result of negligence or failing to follow proper safety protocols. Oftentimes, accidents on cruise ships happen as a direct result of poor maintenance, inadequate safety or security, or as a result of poorly trained crew members. Sometimes, they occur when the captain or crew fail to safely operate their vessel, such as incidents where the captain was intoxicated, sleeping or failing to pay attention.

There have also been many stories over the past few years about incidents of food poisoning on board cruise ships, communicable diseases, even sexual assaults and murders. However, many accidents involve slipping and falling on wet or uneven surfaces. Other examples include a lack of medical care, accidents in swimming pools or on water slides, or injuries incurred while taking a day excursion on shore.

In all of these cases, it is possible for the cruise line to be held liable for the pain and suffering experienced by the victim. Victims might be entitled to compensation for medical expenses or lost wages from being unable to work.

However, it is imperative that victims understand the limitations of these kinds of lawsuits. Typically, they only have one year from the date that the accident occurred to file their claim against the cruise line. Therefore, it is important to act quickly.
