Due to wet surfaces, proximity to other passengers, easily overlooked safety concerns, and many other factors, it is very possible to suffer an injury while traveling on a cruise liner.

Marcus is now working with a proven and experienced Los Angeles injury lawyer who is ready to assess your case, explore legal options, and determine the best course of action to pursue the compensation you deserve.

Important Cruise Ship Injury Considerations

Cruise ship injuries are not like usual premises liability, or "slip and fall" cases. Because they take place at sea—and that many cruise liner operators anticipate possible passenger injury—there are different factors to consider when an injury occurs.

If you have been hurt on a cruise, you should consider the following:

  • Your ticket. It is considered a contract with the cruise operator and usually limits their liability in the case of an accident. It will likely detail other agreements, like the statute of limitations to file an injury claim and where they should be filed.
  • Cruise ships are "common carriers." This means they must adhere to stringent safety standards.
  • Maritime law applies. That means common carriers must show "due care" to ship conditions relevant to passenger safety.
  • Injury caused by ship employees. These injuries commonly hold the cruise operator liable and not the individual worker. Some exceptions, like the cruise medical staff, may apply.

While these additional considerations can be complex and intimidating, they can be handled properly by an experienced and proven cruise ship accident attorney in Los Angeles. One way in which these cases do not differ from other personal injury cases: negligence must be sought out, emphatically put forth, and proven in court.
