Cruise Lines are accountable for your safety

Cruise Ship Rape Lawyers

Sexual assaults and sexual abuse on cruise ships are more common than most people realize.

These unfortunate incidents occur between passengers, between crew members and between crew and passengers. Sexual assaults can also be perpetrated on children.

Quite often, these cases are covered up by the cruise line, their crew and their attorneys. Claims are marginalized. Victims are ashamed, embarrassed, afraid and unsure of what actions to take.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Our attorneys can help. Through the years, the attorneys at Waks & Barnett, P.A. have represented numerous passengers who were victims of sexual assaults. The assaults are traumatic and the aftermath for the victim and their family can be equally traumatic, potentially causing lifelong mental anguish. We take sexual assault cases on cruise ship EXTREMELY SERIOUSLY. We believe these cases require tough litigation and a focused approach. Experience matters greatly in these cases.

You Can Sue the Cruise Line for Sexual Abuse and Rape

If you were a victim of a sex crime while on a cruise, we’d like to hear your story. Our attorneys will speak with you confidentially and will work to help you build a successful case against the person who abused you as well as the cruise line.

Yes – the person who attacked you can be held responsible for their actions. Additionally, the cruise line can be held accountable as well. The company that owns the cruise line has a duty of care to ensure that no injury or harm comes to its passengers – they are responsible for maintaining safety aboard their ships.

If that duty of care is broken – if a passenger is raped or a child is molested for example – the victim and their family may be able to sue for compensation.

Claims of rape and sexual abuse on cruise ships can be difficult to prove. Often, weeks or months go by before a victim contacts an attorney. In this passage of time, evidence can be lost, the attacker or perpetrator could have left the ship and memories can fade. It takes committed and aggressive attorneys to fight against the cruise line’s lawyers. Our attorneys know how to conduct an investigation even if months have passed since the crime. We will be with you every step of the way and will ensure your privacy throughout the process.

Why Does it Seem Like Sexual Abuse is so Common on Cruise Ships?

If anything, cruise ships and cruise vacations are a microcosim of American society. What happens in any big city or small town can also happen on a cruise.

People with the tendency (or opportunity) to commit sexual violence and abuse take cruises too – whether it’s another passenger or even people working on the cruise ship. And cruise ships may offer more opportunities for these incidents to occur.

Cruise vacations tend to inhibit passenger’s awareness. Alcohol may put people in situations they wouldn’t ordinarily find themselves in. Predators can take advantage.

Sexual crimes on cruise ships can take many different forms and can include incest, drug-facilitated assault, abuse of people with disabilities, abuse by medical professionals and even the use of technology like cameras and social media.

Additionally, victims of abuse can suffer a wide variety of painful physical injuries. The injuries and abuse may very well lead to medical and hospital bills, emotional pain and suffering rehab, related therapy costs, loss of wages and employment opportunities and more.

What Can You Expect From Our Cruise Ship Attorneys?

If you’ve been injured on a cruise vacation you want someone to fight for you against the cruise line attorneys, the insurance companies and other parties.

That is what we do for you – that is what you can expect from our firm and our attorneys. And while we can not guarantee results in the courtroom – no attorney can – we do guarantee that we will work diligently to achieve the best possible result for you.

We will thoroughly review your potential case, investigate the facts surrounding your accident and create a plan of action for pursuing compensation for your injuries.

If you choose to have us represent you, we’ll send a retainer package. From there, we’ll represent you and work toward resolution, either through a settlement with the cruise line or through a decision made by the court.

Remember, there is no fee charged to you for our services. We work on a ‘contingency fee‘ basis which means there is no charge for our services unless you receive compensation from the cruise line.

Our clients need help! It’s why they turn to us investigate their injury claims and file lawsuits on their behalf against the cruise lines for slip and fall accidents, swimming pool accidents, cases of medical negligence, rape and sexual assault and crew member injury claims.

If you or your family have questions about a cruise injury, accident or medical issue, please call us at this toll-free number, 1-800-905-2891.
