Medical Question from Cruise Ship Employee

Recently we had an inquiry from a cruise ship worker who had been diagnosed with COPD a chronic lung disease.

Their question to our firm was, “should I continue working?”

The reality was that with a question like this, more details need to be known. As cruise ship injury attorneys, we’re often sought out to provide advice, both before potential injuries occur and after injuries have occurred.

If a crew member has questions related to injuries, we do invite them to reach out.

Quite often, crew members are made to work while sick or while hurt. Too often we’ve spoken to crew members who have had severe back or knee injuries continue to work hour after hour, month after month because they’ve feared being sent home and losing their positions — even though each workday is wrought with physical pain.
