Cruise Ship Crew Member Question: Assault in the Genital Area, Do I Have a Case to Sue?


Cruise Lawyer Question: I Was Assaulted in the Genitals, Can You Help?

This was a relatively unusual inquiry we received recently. A crew member who was working an even was struck in the ‘genital area’ by a passenger.

In the incident mentioned above, does the crew member have a case for filing an injury claim for his injury? The answer depends on the specific details of the accident (which are not shared here).

If you’re unsure about your accident, that’s exactly when you should contact a lawyer

For crew members who were hurt while working on the cruise ship, regardless of whether you feel an accident was your fault or the cruise ship’s fault – or in this case, the fault of a passenger – it’s always a good idea to contact a cruise injury law firm. With their experience, they’ll be able to quickly determine whether you should file an injury claim – or not.

Often, crew members believe that have ‘no legal rights’ or are ‘very unsure’ about what legal protection they do have. They generally have very little understanding of their rights and what constitutes ‘negligence’ on the part of the cruise line.

A quick – and free – consultation could go a long way to answering any questions you might have.
