Wrongful Deaths Aboard Florida Cruise Ships

When someone dies from unnatural causes a wrongful death has occurred and the negligent parties can be held accountable. It doesn’t matter if you are in an automobile accident, walking past a construction site, or taking a cruise on a Florida cruise ship, catastrophic accidents can occur. Such has been the case recently as several young persons have drowned in the swimming pools on board various Florida cruise ships.

Recent Wrongful Deaths Aboard Florida Cruise Ships

  • On May 18, 2015, while on a 7 day trip to Florida and the Bahamas,a 10-year-old girl drowned in a pool on board The Norwegian “Gem,” operated by Norwegian Cruise Line.
  • In February 2015, a four-year-old boy drowned while on The Norwegian’s “Breakaway” cruise ship on a cruise from New York to the Bahamas.
  • In October 2013, on the Carnival “Victory” cruise ship, a six-year-old Florida boy drowned in the on board swimming pool.

All three ships did not provide supervision or life guards at poolside and officials for the cruise ship companies claim that posted signs stating “Swim at your own risk” were adequate warning. Their justification for the warning signs is that ” that’s the way hotels do it”. Apparently these warnings are inadequate. Each of these Florida cruise ships drowning deaths we’re completely preventable wrongful deaths. Had the cruise ship companies taken the care and invested the money to hire professional lifeguards to be attendant at each pool and not negligently failed to do so, these three young people could be alive today.

If you have a loved one that has suffered a wrongful death aboard a Florida cruise ship you can sue the company and its insurance company for lost wages, medical and financial expenses, mental anguish, and pain and suffering. Maritime laws are complex so you’ll need an experienced cruise ship wrongful death lawyer from The Maus Law Firm to sort things out and help you recover the maximum amount of compensation.
