Slip and falls are a leading cause of injuries on cruise ships, accounting for hundreds of painful injuries per year.
A common question from our clients is, “can I sue for slipping on the cruise ship?”
The answer to that question is…possibly.
Sometimes slip and fall injuries are so severe that passengers miss time at work, incur extensive hospital bills and have issues with their insurance companies. The physical pain and the emotional suffering can continue long after the cruise vacation has ended.
Often these injuries and deaths are caused by dangerous or hazardous conditions caused by the negligence or carelessness of the cruise ship crew members, the design of the vessel or obstacles on the ground that should not be there.
If that’s the case, then you might have an ability to file a claim against the cruise line. A component of the case, however, will be proving negligence or carelessness – and that’s often difficult.
