Slip and falls are a leading cause of injuries on cruise ships, accounting for hundreds of painful injuries per year.
Sometimes those injuries are so severe that victims incur missed time at work, extensive hospital bills and issues with their insurance companies. The physical pain and the emotional suffering can continue long after the cruise vacation has ended.
Often these injuries and deaths are caused by dangerous or hazardous conditions caused by the negligence or carelessness of the cruise ship crew members, the design of the vessel or obstacles on the ground that should not be there.
An injury – or even death – from a fall that is caused by a hazardous condition in another person’s property may entitle the victim or the victim’s family to compensation.
