Did you know – not all cruise ship injuries happen on the boat. Many occur “off the boat” – on the shuttle boats (called tenders) that take you to shore, in the busy port loading and unloading areas or even on the shore excursions themselves.
These shore excursions are often promoted by the cruise lines. The vendors, the small companies who offer the excursions, generally only are able to stay in business because of the traffic of cruise ship passengers that are delivered by the cruise lines. Life is good when everything goes right on these excursions.
But what happens when things go wrong? What happens when a tour bus is involved in an accident? What happens if a snorkeling accident results in an injury. What happens if a passenger is assaulted, gets sick or has to go to a local hospital?
Cruise ship passengers are often left with physical injuries and a lot of confusion. If they’re fortunate to make it back to the cruise ship, they can be checked out by the cruise ship’s medical staff and possibly file an incident report.
But what then? After arriving back home after the vacation, passengers are often confused about their rights. If they believed another person’s negligent acts played a role in their accident or injuries, how do they take legal action? The accident happened in some exotic location? Can they take legal action?
