Cruise Lines are accountable for your injuries

slip and fall cruise ship accident lawyers

Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of accident aboard cruise ships. Unsteady footing due to the motion of the boat along with slippery decks and crowded common areas create opportunities for accidents to happen.
Unfortunately, these accidents can leave passengers with a variety of injuries, some of them very serious. We’ve talked to too many passengers whose injuries have severely impacted their quality of life!

Our Cruise Ship Slip and Fall Attorneys Can Help

While most slip and fall accidents are simply ‘just accidents’, there are some accidents that happen due to the negligence of the cruise line or its employees. That means the cruise line is liable for the passenger’s injury and can be held responsible for paying the passenger for pain and suffering, medical bills and for lost wages from missed time at work. Establishing negligence by the cruise line and then proving that negligence can be quite difficult. This is why many passengers turn to cruise ship injury lawyers to help them with the legal process.

It’s unfortunate, but if you’re injured, you may face medical bills and lost time at work, not to mention the pain and frustration of having to deal with an injury that wasn’t your fault. The cruise line will require you to follow their rules about filing an injury claim. They may act very slowly and very begrudgingly, if they even act at all. That’s why clients choose Waks and Barnett, P.A. – they need representation from a lawyer to fight the cruise line in order for the cruise line to pay for their injury, their lost wages and for their pain.

Should I Worry About Falling Down While Taking a Cruise Vacation?

Very simply, slip and fall accidents occur when a passenger or crew member slips or is knocked off their feet resulting in a fall that injures them. With the average age of cruise ship passengers being over 50 years old, even seemingly small accidents can cause severe injury and pain. These accidents can happen on the ship and can also happen off the ship. Accidents can occur aboard the ship, in guest rooms, dining rooms, near the pool, in bathrooms, stairways and just about any other place on the boat. Royal Caribbean Cruises offer a simulated surfing machine called the FlowRider that is responsible for a high number of passenger injuries. They can also occur off the ship on gangways, getting on or off tenders or even during shore excursions.

The cruise ship is obligated to keep areas free from hazards and alert passengers as well as employees about dangerous conditions. When crew members fail to perform their job duties correctly, the responsibility of the slip and fall injury may fall on the cruise line operating the ship.

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 number, 1-305-271-8282.
