According to reports, Royal Caribbean’s Quantum of the Seas cruise ship was damaged when a fire broke out on the third deck. The incident occurred on June 5.
Fire accidents aboard cruise ships can be very frightening – and deadly. Fortunately, this small incident occurred while the cruise ship was still being built and response to the incident was quick.
Fires aboard cruise ships at sea can damage engines and infrastructure of the vessel and endanger the lives of passengers and crew. In May, Royal Caribbean’s Grandeur of the Seas caught fire while traveling to the Bahamas.
Can I file an injury claim for fire accidents on cruise ships?
If you were on a cruise ship that caught fire and were injured because of the fire, smoke inhalation or a situation stemming from that fire, you might have a potential claim.
It would be difficult to answer that question without more details and a better understanding of the incident. Fortunately, fires aboard cruise ships happen infrequently.
That being said, it’s always best to speak with a cruise ship injury lawyer if you have questions about a fire accident or other injuries you may have suffered while on a cruise vacation.
If you believe you have a claim against a cruise line – or even if you’re unsure about your options – you should speak with cruise ship injury lawyers who have years of experience representing passengers and crewmembers.
