Cruise Ship Accident

Cruise Ship Accident Injury

Hiring a personal injury lawyer is the last thing you are thinking about as you book a cruise ship vacation. However, accidents, sickness, injuries and crimes happen on cruise ships just as often as anywhere else. Here are some things to think about to help avoid many pitfalls of travel on a cruise ship.


Cruise Ship Rights

Read your entire ticket. Pay particular attention to the fine print. Many of your cruise ship rights are spelled out on the ticket. The fine print often spells out your effective "statute of limitations" for suing the Cruise Ship, even if the shipping company is at fault. Contact a lawyer and act quickly if you feel like you have suffered an injury while on a cruise ship. The cruise ship's ticket might even specify where a lawsuit has to be filed. Be aware of these restrictions, and be sure to point them out to your lawyer. What Law Governs Cruise Ships For the most part, cruise ships are governed by the law of the country they are registered in. Do not assume that a cruise ship is Governed by United States law simply because you get on the ship in the United States.


Medical Care on the Cruise Ship

Beware that not all cruise ships provide the same quality of medical care. Research the quality of care, and the education of the ship's physician before you depart on your cruise vacation. Proper research can help you avoid a situation where you suffer from medical negligence or medical malpractice on a cruise ship. If you do receive inadequate medical care while traveling on a cruise ship, contact one of our personal injury lawyers to discuss your case for free.


Crime on a Cruise Ship

If you fall victim to a crime on a cruise ship, don't assume the cruise ship company is looking out for your best interest. The cruise ship's first step is to protect itself. They might even look for evidence against you.


How to Protect Your Rights

If you have fallen victim to an injury or crime due to negligence on the part of the cruise ship, contact a maritime or admiralty lawyer as soon as possible. Other steps you can take include taking photographs of the scene of the injury, and getting names and contact information for anyone who witnessed the injury.
