Can a passenger sue a cruise line if they got meningitis aboard a cruise ship?

Can a passenger sue a cruise line if they contracted meningitis while on a cruise?

Can crew members also sue the cruise line they work for if they got meningitis while working on the cruise ship?

Those are two questions our maritime attorneys have been asked over the last few days. The simple answer is that there is no simple answer. Each case is individual and specific to itself and the answer is based on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

An experienced cruise ship personal injury attorney can help you find the answer. They will ask questions related to your personal situation and help you determine whether or not you have a case.

There are many factors involved:

  • What are your rights?
  • Where did the illness occur?
  • What location are you able to bring a lawsuit in against the cruise line?
  • What documents did you sign when you booked your cruise?
  • What does the wording of the documents say?

Those can be complicated questions with complicated answers. An experienced lawyer who has worked on similar cases against the cruise line can be trusted to provide you with accurate and fair information.
