A recent zip line excursion left one cruise ship passenger with multiple injuries which could potentially alter the passenger’s health for the long term.
Because the passenger was in no condition to reach out to our office in Miami on their own, the son-in-law connected with us.
The accident happened on a cruise line directed excursion on the island of St. Kitts. The passenger was attempting to enjoy a zip line activity when things went wrong.
- being knocked unconscious
- fractures in both ankles
- a broken nose
- multiple surgeries
The question for our firm when passengers injuries like this are reported to us are:
- What role did the Celebrity Cruises play (if any) in this accident?
- Was Celebrity or its employees negligent in their actions or policies?
- Was the cruise line at fault?
- Could the cruise line be held liable for the passenger’s injury, healthcare and loss of wages?
A potential case like this one sparks many questions and requires the collection of facts, documentation and other information so we can help determine “what happened” and “why it happened.”
This case is also no different than other potential cases that cross our desks each day. Our goal is to help each cruise ship injury victim to prove their case and get the compensation they deserve.
